Wooden panel

This wooden panel, which was bought in Thebes in 1901 by J. Capart, is probably a fragment of a door closing the entrance of a funeral chapel. The deceased and his wife, who are depicted seated before an offering table, are receiving homage from a priest. The hieroglyphs that accompany the scene are slightly faded. The monkey crouching under the woman's seat is an amusing detail in this piece, which dates from the New Kingdom.
