Antefoqer and Senet

Antefoqer and Senet

Unlike the previous scenes, that have an essentially metaphorical significance, here it is about showing a very real activity, practiced on a large scale by many servants of the master. To save space, the decorator collected (in an ingenious manner) the two opportunities to use a net in the marshes, for fishing and for water-fowling. He confined the areas of hunting inside a blue rectangle (which is very well preserved), surrounded by a white rectangle, thus producing the semi-aquatic environment and its banks.

The Theban hypogeum bearing the number 60 (TT60) is one of the only funerary complexes known for a woman of the Middle Kingdom, and the oldest Theban tomb decorated of this period which has survived in a proper state.
