^Excellent work Takuri. We don't often see these.
A surprising number of "daily life" books I have
seen opt for wall paintings and don't show figurines.

One of the truly rare events in Egyptology is the discovery of an intact tomb. Among the kings of Egypt, Tut was the only intact tomb found to date. We are pleased to have Dr. Marleen De Meyer present her findings on one such tomb. Since 2002 the University of Leuven (Belgium) has been conducting excavations at the site of Dayr al-Barsha in Middle Egypt. This place was used as a necropolis by the inhabitants of the nearby provincial capital Hermopolis throughout most of ancient Egyptian history. Dayr al-Barsha is most famous for its Middle Kingdom nomarchs’ tombs, including the well-preserved tomb of governor Djehutihotep, but the site also contains a large Old Kingdom rock necropolis. The limestone cliffs are honeycombed with hundreds of small Old Kingdom tombs, some of which preserve traces of decoration. In several of these tombs, a restoration inscription dating to the late First Intermediate Period was carved. What this restoration consisted of, became clear when the intact burial of Henu was found, an administrator serving under a governor named Djehutinakht at the end of the First Intermediate Period. This burial contained not only the perfectly preserved coffin and mummy of the deceased, but also a number of wooden tomb models portraying scenes of daily life in Ancient Egypt.
