 TT6, the tomb of Neferhotep and his son, Nebnefer .




Only part of the the image of the lady Iy, the wife of Nebnefer, remains and she is standing behind her husband who is actually portrayed on the south end of the west wall. "His daughter, who makes his name live, Iy, 'True of Voice' by Osiris [...]". It is also on the west wall that the explanatory text, painted in beautiful coloured hieroglyphs, which ends in front of Iy, begins: "To bring all good and pure things for your ka, the Osiris, master of the west, Un-nefer, master of the Sacred Land, the foreman of the team of the Place of Truth, Neferhotep. His son, who makes live his name, the foreman of the team of the Place of Truth, Nebnefer, 'True of Voice' by the great god. His sister, the chantress of Khnum, Satet and Anuket.".
Iy holds in her hands two instruments with Hathoric connotations: a sistrum in her right hand, a Menat necklace and its counterweight in her left hand. According to the custom of the Ramesside period, her dress is full, occupying a significant space in the composition

Artist's sketch, Ostracon
Ostracon, showing two human figures, the left one drawn in red ink, the other in red and black. The two men are standing on a line, drawn in red ink, with a table, resting on a pillar, in between them. The man on the left has a shaved head and is wearing a kilt. The man next to him is facing left, dressed in a short loincloth, is wearing a pectoral and bracelets, and is holding a sceptre in his right hand. His crown is of the doubled feathered type. This divine attribute helps to identify the right most man as the god Amun, while the other one is an ordinary man. Possible votive object.

Kneeling figure

Kneeling figure
Wooden sculpture of this type and period is extremely rare. The surviving examples probably all come from tombs. The kneeling posture might indicate the piety of the deceased; it is less easy to explain the position of the arms, tightly enclosed in a cloak, although an image of similar form, named the tekenu was included in the funeral procession at élite burials.

Amulet of Duamutef




Amulet of Duamutef
Faience amulet in the form of the jackal-headed Duamutef, one of the four sons of Horus, protectors of the inner organs treated separately in mummification. His role is indicated by the mummiform body and the mummy-bandages held as crossed diagonals on the chest. With his three brothers Duamutef regularly forms a set of four funerary amulets placed on the body in the 3rd Intermediate Period and later. On this example the plain tripartite wig is picked out in purple-black glaze against the turquoise-blue background.
