Painting of fish offerings from the Tomb of Benia

Painting of fish offerings from the Tomb of Benia

Detail of a painting in the Tomb of Benia, TT 343 at Thebes. Benia called Pahekmen was the 'Overseer of the Works' and the 'Child of the Nursery'. His tomb, located in the west bank of Thebes in the Sheik Abd el Qurna necropolis, has a very simple T-shape. This detail comes from a scene depicting offering-bearers in white kilts, who bring many different offerings for the tomb owner for his funerary banquet. These include cattle, geese, vegetables and different kinds of fish. The scene shows two men carrying five big fish, which appear to be quite a heavy load.
