Offering Bearers Tomb Relief
Late 18th Dynasty (1350–1305 B.C.)
6 3/8 H x 6 5/8 W
Gift of Heinrich Medicus
This relief, which would have decorated the walls of a tomb chapel, shows rows of servants bringing offerings to the tomb. Such depictions would magically serve to sustain the dead in case actual offerings were not delivered to the chapel by the family or priests.
