'Funeral banquet in Rekhmire's tomb at Luxor.'
In Rekhmire's tomb a large painting in several registers shows his funeral banquet. Here we see a detail with servants offering lotus flowers and necklaces to female guests who are seated on mats.
Rekhmire was an 18th dynasty vizier (viceroy) of Southern Egypt, mayor of Thebes and steward of the Amon Temple at Karnak during the reigns of Thutmosis III and Amenhotep II. His tomb (TT 100) is located in the Sheikh Abd el Qurnah Necropolis on the Westbank at Luxor and is one of the socalled "Tombs of the Nobles". Photo Mick Palarczyk and Paul Smit.
