This is a fragment from a temple wall.
It is from the wall of the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II, Deir el-Bahari. This fragment of carving is from a wall in the mortuary temple of the pharaoh Mentuhotep II at Deir el Bahari. The walls were decorated with scenes of battles (Mentuhotep had been a successful war leader in campaigns against Libya and Sinai), processions and hunting, reflecting Mentuhotep’s life. The figure here may be from a hunting scene, with the tip of his curved bow just visible. This is a fragment from a temple wall. It is carved from limestone. It is about 3,000 years old, dating to the 21st Dynasty (about 1069-945 BCE) in the Third Intermediate Period.
