DFW gets a jackal-headed god

In some parts of the country the buzz at the airport has been all about the forecast of snow. But at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport they were on the lookout for a giant jackal-headed god.

They weren’t disappointed. DFW International Airport welcomed the ancient Egyptian jackal-headed god Anubis, guide and protector of the dead, to the Airport’s Founders’ Plaza. The 10-ton, 26-foot-tall statue has a giant candy cane staff and is on duty to remind travelers that there’s a “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA).
