TT277, the tomb of Ameneminet .

TT277, the tomb of Ameneminet .



The decoration begins on the west wall with the representation of a funeral boat resting on a sledge pulled by men and oxen. On the boat is a decorated catafalque (or box) of sculptured wood and gold, enhanced by friezes painted in black, which protects the mummy. At the front and at the rear are Isis and Nephtys, with arms raised. In the bow, a black canine stands on a bulwark: it is probably Wepwawet, "the opener of the paths" .In front of the boat and turned towards the rear, a sem-priest, clothed of the traditional panther skin, makes an encensement Note that he wears a wig, which is not the case of the four priests, who are wearing white sandals, who pull the rope on the towpath. The latter part is split to produce two sub-registers on each of which there are four oxen and their cattleman.
