Anubis (in pw) a jackal headed god of the dead, appears to hover along the Thames. Anubis was mentioned as early as the Pyramid texts of Unas, being associated with the eye of Horus. Anubis accompanied individuals between this world and the netherworld and also was associated with embalming. The statue is part of the Tutankhamun exhibit at the British Museum.
