Funeral Ritual in a Garden, Tomb of Minnakht
Twentieth Century; original New Kingdom
This facsimile painting copies a section of wall painting in the tomb of Minnakht (TT 87) in western Thebes. The scene depicts a garden surrounding a building with a large pool in front of it. In the lowest register, two men stand in front of small offering tables. Each man pours a libation with one hand and holds a brazier with buring incense in the other.
The facsimile was painted at the tomb in 1921 by Charles K. Wilkinson, a member of the Graphic Section of the Museum's Egyptian Expedition.
