Painted Plaster Pavement Fragment

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 119

Discovered in Room E of the palace of Amenhotep III at Malqata, this fragment was part of the border of the decorated mud plaster floor. The painting style closely resembles that of similar pavements found at Amarna, the city built by Amenhotep's son and successor Akhenaten, suggesting that some of the same artists worked at both locations.

For other paintings from the palace, see 11.215.453, 11.215.454, 12.180.257 and 12.180.258.
