Shroud of Hori

New Kingdom, Ramesside

Not on view

This colorful scene depicts Hori at his funerary meal, wearing a cone of fragrant incense on his head. The heaped table is described as "an offering of all things good and pure for the spirit of the Osiris Hori, justified." The offerings include three white loaves of bread, a cut of meat, and various vegetables. Beneath the table are two sealed jars of beer. The scene was painted on a linen sheet that was probably a shroud laid over Hori's coffin.
