Corner of niche from the tomb of Akhtihotep
These relief blocks forming a corner show Akhtihotep twice: on the left, he wears a panther-skin garment, the tail of which hangs down between his legs, and on the right, he wears a standard kilt. Placed to form one side and the front, respectively, of the frame of a double
recessed false door, the reliefs were so arranged that Akhtihotep appeared both emerging from the false-door niche (left) and entering it (right).
Other blocks from Akhtihotep's tomb (58.44.2a) depict offering bearers.
