Ti at Sakkara

Relief from the tomb of Ti at Saqqara

Old Kingdom, Fifth Dynasty c 2480-2350 BC. Limestone painted. This is one of many brilliantly executed scenes in the tomb of Ti illustrating episodes from everyday life. The figures begin to overlap and the gestures are more lifelike than in earlier reliefs.
