Estatua de Hapuseneb

Estatua de Hapuseneb Museo del Louvre

Model of a funerary boat

Funerary boat, of low keel and not too high ends. Six persons are standing in line on its deck, holding a lamb to be sacrificed. On one end of the boat there is a squatting man, who would be in charge of the rudder, and next to him another man standing up, completing the crew. This piece is not of high artistic merit; it is the product of a workshop for middle class customers who were improving their lifestyle in this period. It is not a boat for going on pilgrimage to Abydos, but a model of offering bearers that were placed inside the tombs.
