A feast for Nebamun. An entire wall of the tomb-chapel showed a feast in honour of Nebamun. Naked serving girls and servants wait on his friends and relatives. Married guests sit in pairs on fine chars, while the young women turn and talk to each other. This erotic scene of relaxation and wealth is something for Nebamun to enjoy for all eternity. The richly dressed guests are entertained by dancers and musicians, who sit on the ground playing and clapping. Thebes, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, around 1350 BC
