Zoser's enclosure.

Zoser's enclosure. Occupied by stone replicas of kiosks and chapels for the celebration of the royal jubilee festivals (heb-sed). It is likely that during the Old Kingdom these festivals took place at Ineb-hedj (Memphis). The structures here were provided for the jubilee the king hoped to enjoy in the afterlife. Country of Origin: Egypt. Culture: Ancient Egyptian. Date/Period: 5th dynasty, c.2494-2345 BC. Place of Origin: Saqqara. Credit Line: Werner Forman Archive/ . Location: 17.
