Жертвенный телец


Теленок с цветными лентами, цветком лотоса и плодами граната - фреска из погребения Менна, 18 династия.
Menna was an 18th dynasty inspector of estates and overseer of harvests. His tomb (TT 69) is located in the Sheikh Abd el Qurnah Necropolis on the Westbank at Luxor. It is one of the socalled "Tombs of the Nobles" and dates to the end of the reign of Thutmosis IV and the beginning of the reign of Amenhotep III. Photo Mick Palarczyk and Paul Smit.
