Breasted: 1. Cairo Museum, JE 46724 (Pl. 6). Eleventh dynasty. Meketre sits in a chair on a porch covered by roof which is supported by four slim columns and back wall. On his left sits his son and heir; on his right four clerks are seated in a row. On and near porch stand several butlers and stewards, each with left foot forward, and,. facing straight forward. In the court itself, some nine men, each armed with a stick, are driving seventeen head of cattle past reviewing stand for Meketre's inspection. Most of the animals are spotted; two are white. Several have been caught in realistic movement, especially the white one in the corner farthest from Meketre on his left. Great attention is paid to detail; even the drains on porch roof are rendered to scale.|
