Egyptian Funerary Stela of Intef and Senettekh wall plaque art Sculpture 12" www.Neo-Mfg.com Museum Reproduction
Size 12" wide x 10"
In this stela from their tomb, Intef and his wife Senettekh are shown with an image of their pet dog under their chair. Including such an image was a more common way of memorializing the family pet than mummification.
The two of them sit before an offering table. It is piled high with (from bottom to top) beer jars, round loaves of bread, and animal products. A beef foreleg covers the bread. A bull’s head and a whole duck form the next layer. Green onions and another beef cut lie above that. A dorcas gazelle head, a lettuce leaf, another animal head, and a beef roast with a bone form the top layer. In reality, these offerings would have been mummified and placed in the tomb.
