Painting of musicians from the Tomb of Nakht

Detail of a painting from the Tomb of Nakht, Astronomer of Amun, TT 52 in the Tombs of the Nobles at Thebes. Nakht was a writer who held the title 'Astronomer of Amun'. His tomb comprises the entrance hall leading to the transverse hall, and then to the inner hall, which ended with a niche. Most of the scenes represent daily life, such as picking and squeezing grapes, and the wine industry. There are also scenes of hunting, but the most famous scenes in the tomb are the boards of music and dance depicted here.
