Painting of a banquet in the Tomb of Suemnut

Detail of a painting in the Tomb of Suemnut, TT92 at Thebes. Suemnut was the 'Royal Butler Clean of Hands' in the temple of Amenhotep II in the west bank of Thebes. This scene shows attendants at his funerary banquet. Men are sitting together in the upper part of the scene, being served by male servants, while the women in long sleeveless dresses are depicted in the bottom part of the scene and girl servants take care of their comfort. They all sit behind the tomb owner and his wife who are depicted in much larger scale. The banquet attendants hold in their hands blue lotus flowers which symbolism resurrection.
