Breasted -- 6. Cairo Museum, tomb of Karenen. Again we find a building with arched beams radiating from central posts to the side walls, and again Quibell is mistaken in designating this as another 'vineyard.' In this case, five figures are preserved, and the evidence for its being a spinning and weaving scene is conclusive. One figure stands with the left arm and the right leg raised in a typical attitude of spinning; this figure seems to be a man. The four other figures, three of which are unmistakably women, appear to be engaged in weaving. |
Base: 49 cm. x 37 cm.; height. 13 cm. Tenth dynasty. Quibell, Excav. at Saq. (1906-07), Pl. XIX:2 text, pp. 11, 76. Very badly preserved.
