Fragment of a Tomb Relief

Fragment of a Tomb Relief

1401–1391 BC


Overall: 40 x 37.5 cm (15 3/4 x 14 3/4 in.)

Gift of the John Huntington Art and Polytechnic Trust 1914.670



In later ages tombs must have served as dwelling places for peasants, since the walls became completely blackened with soot. This fragment is from the most common type of Egyptian tomb scene: the deceased and his wife seated at the funeral banquet of at an offering table.
