Painting of a man from Lower Egypt from the Tomb of Kenamun

Painting of a man from Lower Egypt from the Tomb of Kenamun

Painting from TT 93 in the Valley of the Nobles at Thebes, the tomb of Kenamun, chief steward of the King Amenhotep II. This figure with red skin and black hair represents the people from Lower Egypt, called Ta Mehu in ancient Egyptian. The word Mehu was written with the hieroglyphic sign of a papyrus plant, which grew all around the Nile Delta, and was the symbol of Lower Egypt. The figure is depicted without a beard because the Egyptians always shaved and only foreigners had beards.
