(INDIANAPOLIS) - If you think you've seen a 25-foot ancient Egyptian god in downtown Indianapolis... You aren't hallucinating.

A statue of the jackal-headed god Anubis is on display to announce the anticipated arrival of King Tut to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

Museum President and CEO Jeffrey Patchen says the exhibit, "King Tutankhamen: The Golden King And The Great Pharaohs" opens June 27th.

Anubis is believed to be the guide and protector of the dead in ancient Egypt and has accompanied the King Tut collection in 4 other cities around the world.

Patchen says the Children's Museum has received this exhibit as a gesture of gratitude from the first lady of Egypt, Suzanne Mubarak.

Museum officials have helped the first lady established a children's museum in that country.
