Tomb of Inherkhau

Tomb of Inherkhau
This tomb belongs to the artistic supervisor of the necropolis in the 20th Dynasty. Its decoration, not surprisingly, is extremely good, especially in the innermost chamber where the deceased is depicted with a group of his grandchildren receiving a statuette of Osiris and a box containing a shawabti figure. He is also depicted with his wife holding candles and listening to a harp-player.

On the right-hand wall Inherkhau can be seen adoring two lions, guardians of the two horizons which came to represent Today and Tomorrow.
