The tomb of Ankhtifi at Mo'alla

The tomb of Ankhtifi at Mo'alla




Pillar 20
The lower register is occupied entirely by dancers (thirteen originally, of which four are better preserved) who are holding each other by the hand. It seems that the artist, using the round shape of the support, wanted to give to the spectator the impression that these women were dancing around the pillar. A short legend is painted in black above some of these women and pernits their identification: "His daughter [beloved], Nebi, the younger"; "His [daughter] Iret (?) and (his) daughter Nebi.. do that which Hathor likes in favour of Ankhtifi".
In the upper register, women (nine originally) are again arranged around the pillar, but this time, they don't hold each other anymore by the hand. Today this scene has almost entirely disappeared
