Travel to Egypt: Tomb of Sennefer
Sennefer was mayor of Thebes during the reign of Amenhetep II. Like several other designated occupants of the tombs we've seen, he may not have been buried here, but in his case this may have been good news, with his being held in such favor that he was burried in the Valley of the Kings.
Still, this is the entrance to what was supposed to be his tomb.
It's a ways down.
The rock of the ceiling could not be smoothed. Leaving it rough, the tomb's designers capitalized on the irregular surface and painted grape vines on it.
The room has several massive piers, decorated but now covered with protective glass. Here, behind a sheet of it, Sennefer smells a lotus flower, while his wife Meryt offers cloth.
