The gazelle that a queen raised as a pet was prepared for her journey into eternity with the same care that a member of the royal family would receive. Wrapped in delicate bandages with blue trimmings and deposited in a custom-made wooden box, it accompanied its owner to the tomb around 945 B.C.⁣ Source: Egyptian Museum, Cairo,CG29835.
