Fragment of a wall of a tomb depicting a man and his wife
Part of a tomb wall decorated with high reliefs depicting the deceased lovingly embraced by his wife. The wife's skin is painted in pale yellow, while her husband is depicted in dark brown. This is in line with the ancient Egyptian tradition of showing the darker skin tone of tanned men who work outdoors, while their women are not exposed to the rays of the sun, particularly noble women. The man wears a short white kilt and a wig, a large collar and a bracelet around each wrist. Above the figures is a hieroglyphic inscription describing the wife as his beloved.
