Painting from the Tomb of Aanen

Detail of a painting in the Tomb of Aanen, TT 120 in Sheikh Abd el-Qurna at Thebes. Aanen was second priest of Amun and the brother of Queen Tiye and the brother-in-law of King Amenhotep III. The scenes of the tombs often included the deceased sitting on a chair in front of an offering table or sitting and, in front of him, bearers making offerings. The representation of the chair developed over time. During the Old and Middle Kingdoms it was a simple chair with animal form legs, often the legs of a lion. In the New Kingdom it evolved to include scenes of the King killing lions, a representation of his enemies.
