man with dog
Description
Breasted -- 2. From Beni Hasan, tomb 487 (of Senbu). Twelfth dynasty. A crude squatting rather ape-like human figure faces an animal which may represent a dog. The theme is probably that of a man playing with a dog, and must be in the same general tradition as the much earlier example from the Old Kingdom. (See also Berlin Museum 13629, Pl. 94d.)
