Painting of musicians at a banquet 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. This scene from the northern wall in the passage from the tomb of Rekhmire shows part of a funeral banquet with male musicians and singers. A man is depicted to the left sitting on a reed mat playing a harp. Another musician is standing behind him and the hieroglyph inscription records the words of his song: 'my life endowed with favour be thine! May a festal day be thine, a veritable sample of paradise, thine effigy (too) spending a festal day, O mayor! For thy beauty is commemorated in the house of Amun'.
