Summary
"This volume is devoted not to remains of royalty but to the tombs of private people." "Sigrid Hodel-Hoenes leads us on an expedition to the cemetery used by the officials of New Kingdom Egypt on the eastern flanks of the Western Mountain across from Thebes, between the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. She examines the contents of eleven tombs belonging to civil servants, the private people of this ancient city." "The book provides details of the location, layout, structure, and decoration of the tombs. Hodel-Hoenes addresses subjects such as the two-dimensional art of the Kingdom of New Thebes, the contents of the tombs, the pigments used in the artists' paints, and the symbolism of the colors and the scenes depicted in the tomb paintings and reliefs."--Jacket
