Tomb of Userhat

Userhat was a royal scribe and tutor for Amenophis II.

The tomb is decorated in many colorful murals, colored quite pink-ish. Many of the murals were damaged by Christians who defaced the religious images.

Inside are images of wine-making, and herding cattle. Of course, there are the standard "offering" scenes, and the colors are still quite brilliant.
