Stela of Senu

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 119

This stela depicts a royal scribe named Senu adoring the deities Imseti and Hapi, two of the four sons of Horus who protected the internal organs that were removed during mummification. Below, Senu's son, a lector priest named Pawahy, recites the funerary prayer inscribed in front of him. Another stela belonging to Senu is displayed in gallery 119 (18.2.5).
