Coffin of Ikhet
This coffin, which is inscribed for a man named Ikhet, and another inscribed for a woman named Netnefret (32.3.429a, b), are decorated in the same manner, perhaps even by the same painter. In each case, the eye panel at the head end of the left side is placed above a polychrome palace facade with a double door that is clearly bolted shut. This is a "false door" through which the spirit may leave and re-enter the coffin. These coffins are similar in style to two other black-painted coffins in gallery 109 (32.3.428a, b; 32.3.431a, b).
