“Become like a chest of writings!” - Instruction of Amennakhte.

Just proving to myself I still, on occasion, do actual work. (The middle photo is actually from ages ago, but never mind.) You can go about your business: move along.

I’m with Amennakhte - I wanna be a library if/when I grow up. One with a massive Egyptian section, of course.

As with the burial chamber of Sennedjem we have created, from 32 individual photographs, a single distortion-free mosaic of the burial chamber of Inherkhau. Shown to the right is the progression of the North wall (after removing geometric distortions). The final reconstruction shown is 1/16 resolution.

Relief in the White Chapel of Sesostris I (also called Senusret or Senwosret I, 1974-1929 B.C.E.).  The chapel was used as a way station for the god’s boat when it was carried along in procession.
The chapel was in Ancient Egyptian times dismantled and reused as filling material.  It was recovered from within one of the pylons of the temple of Amun-Ra and reconstructed in its entirety.

… On the north wall (above), the scenes are to be read from east to west (right to left). The top two registers concern life in the funerary world, inspired by the Book of the Dead, and the bottom register concerns the domestic cult of the deceased. The scenes include the deceased paying homage to a variety of different entities, including his own ba-bird, the god, Ptah, the rising sun (represented by the akhet-sign of two hills between which rises the sun – the two lions facing away from each other are a representation of ‘yesterday’ and ‘tomorrow’), an immense snake named Sata, and four black jackals. The opening of the mouth ritual is also depicted, as are scenes of offering to the deceased and his family. …
