Tile Frieze Representing Lotus and GrapeAlthough the use of glazed tiles and colored paste inlays is known from as early as the Old Kingdom, the apogee of their use came during the New Kingdom (Dynasties XVIIII–XX). An almost identical frieze of lotuses, other flowers, and grape clusters is known to have adorned a wall of a palace of Ramesses III at Tell el Yahudiya in lower (northern) Egypt.
