Painting of a lotus flower from the Tomb of Userhet

Detail of a painting from the tomb of Userhet called Neferhabef, TT 51 in the Tombs of the Nobles at Thebes. Three types of the Egyptian lotus were identified, one of them the blue lotus shown here. Because this plant closes in the evening and opens in the morning, the ancient Egyptians linked it with the sun and the daily cycle of creation and rebirth.
