Hunting in the Afterlife Nebamun is shown hunting birds, in a small boat with his wife Hatshepsut and their young daughter, in the marshes of the Nile. Such scenes had already been traditional parts of tomb-chapel decoration for hundreds of years and show the dead tomb-owner ‘enjoying himself and seeing beauty’, as the hieroglyphic caption here says. A scene depicted on a wall painting from the Theban tomb of the 18th Dynasty high official Nebamun, who lived around 1350 BC. Now in the British Museum. EA37977
