Mastaba de perneb

The entrance to the Lila Acheson Wallace Galleries of Egyptian Art provides a floor plan and brief description of the Egyptian art galleries. The space is dominated by the tomb of the courtier Perneb. Originally built around 2381–2323 B.C. at Saqqara, the cemetery of Egypt's ancient capital Memphis, this monument was acquired from the Egyptian government in 1913. A granite lion and a stela (tombstone) of the second-dynasty pharaoh Raneb also introduce the visitor to the monumentality of ancient Egypt's art and architecture.
