Nebamun Hunting Poster

$20.00

This museum-quality poster depicts a scene from the tomb of Nebamun (c. 1350 BCE) showing the New Kingdom period accountant Nebamun hunting birds in the marshes of Egypt. He is accompanied by his wife and daughter. Scenes like these of the deceased enjoying himself were common in New Kingdom tomb chambers. To the Egyptians, fertile marshes were a symbol of eroticism and rebirth, which gives additional meaning to this image. British Museum, London.
