The hieroglyph signs in the top row of the fragment spell out his name and his position. They tell us that Metetu worked in the “great house,” or the king’s court, as a metalworker. Tomb carvings from Metetu’s time used colorful scenes from daily life to illustrate the sources of the food offerings required by the dead. The bottom row of this fragment shows two men, identified as “guardians of the flock.” The man on the right holds the horn of a valuable long-horned cow, while the hieroglyphs around his head tell of “bringing the fattened calf” from the farm known as “Keth.” [Gallery label text, 2009]", "Dedication" : "Gift of a Friend of the Gallery", "Copyright_Type" : "Artist Unknown", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Sculpture", "Creation_Place2" : "Egyptian", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "Old Kingdom (2686-2125 BCE)", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/73.64_A2.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/73.64_A2.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/73.64_A2.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/73.64_A2.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "14471", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "Print master from slide needs dust & scratches removed and/or reshot", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
