| Pet Gazelle |
In the tomb her pet gazelle had been placed in its own stone sarcophagus.
It was wrapped with the limbs tucked under its belly in a pose reminiscent of the recumbent gazelles in Egyptian art.
Gazelles were sometimes associated with Anuket, goddess of the River Nile and of water in the Nubian tradition. Anuket was sometimes represented as a gazelle (Strandberg, 2009; Chiozzi et al., 2014)
