On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 135

The east wall of Sennedjem's vaulted crypt is decorated with a vignette that illustrates spell number 110 in the Book of the Dead. Here, in a facsimile painted in the tomb, Sennedjem and his wife, Iineferti, are shown harvesting grain, sowing seeds, and pulling flax in the abundant fields of the next world.
