This funerary relief originally adorned the tomb in Egyptian Thebes of Inherkhau, a high official at the court of Ramesses III. It dates from 1184-1153 BCE or later, and it is made of limestone. Inherkhau kneels in a lower right position in the expression or gesture of adoration. The text around him represents a hymn to the setting sun. (Brooklyn Museum, New York)
