This dog figurine is really rather elegant and graceful. It’s a bit under 8 inches long and is made of elephant ivory. You can tell the dog represents a domestic dog because he’s wearing a collar.
The bit that looks like a lever under his chest actually is a lever! Moving it opens and shuts the dog’s mouth, and if the mouth were opened we’d apparently see teeth and a red tongue.
Although it’s not known where it was found, it’s dated to the reign of Amenhotep III of Dynasty 18. It’s now in the Met Museum, acc. no.: 40.2.1
