Mummy Board of Iineferty

New Kingdom, Ramesside

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 126

The Mistress of the House, Iineferty, was buried in an anthropoid wooden coffin (86.1.5a, b). A wooden cover, sometimes called a "mummy board," was placed over the body. This mummy board is carved and painted to represent the deceased as if she were alive and dressed in a long white pleated gown. Other objects in the collection that were discovered in the same tomb can be viewed here.
