Painting of a lake and garden from the Tomb of Rekhmire
Detail of a painting from the Tomb of Rekhmire, Governor of Thebes, TT 100 in the Tombs of the Nobles at Thebes. The ancient Egyptians were skilled and knowledgeable gardeners. The royal palace gardens were known to be beautiful and wonderful. For instance, they knew how to grow ornamental trees, including the Egyptian and imported varieties. This scene of a lake surrounded by trees may be of significance, representing as it does the desire to have a garden like this in the Afterlife.
