Funeral Ritual in a Garden, Tomb of Minnakht

Twentieth Century; original New Kingdom

Charles K. Wilkinson

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 135

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.
