Many animals were held in high regard in ancient Egyptian culture. The ruins of countless temples and tombs are carved with everything from depictions of waterbirds to gazelles and jackals. The mummified remains of cats are commonly found in tombs, and several deities were represented by animals ranging from crafty jackals to Zen-like cats, and swift falcons.
