Funeral Boat, Tomb of Haremhab

Twentieth Century; original New Kingdom, Ramesside

Norman de Garis Davies

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 135

This facsimile painting copies a funeral scene from the Ramesside tomb of a scribe of the divine offerings of Amun named Haremhab. This detail depicts Isis and Nephthys, the divine sisters of the mortuary god Osiris, flanking an elaborate canopy draped with garlands that would have hidden and protected the deceased. A woman kneels in front of the canopy, her hand raised in a gesture of mourning. The scene takes place on the boat that would have carried the mummy to the necropolis.
