Relief of offering bearers carrying boxes

Middle Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 104

Chests with linen clothing played a prominent role in festivals honoring of Hathor. The presence of these fragments in the decoration of Neferu's tomb most likely alludes to her duties as a priestess of this goddess.

For other reliefs from the tomb of Neferu, see 26.3.353* and 31.3.1.
