Painting of a man from Mentiu 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 hair and a black beard represents the land of Mentiu, located in Asia. Mentiu was one of the 'nine bows of Egypt', the foreign peoples outside Egypt. The ancient Egyptian considered these foreigners as enemies and used their figures in decoration as symbols of Egyptian superiority.
