Egyptian mummy cartonnage. This 15-inch-long fragment of cartonnage once covered the legs of Lady Tadjehuty, who lived and died in Egypt during the reign of the Ptolemies (332‒30 B.C.). A column of hieroglyphics running up the center invokes the aid of Anubis, the jackal-headed god of embalming. The vignettes show the four sons of the god Horus.
