Kawit


Kawit was an ancient Egyptian queen consort, a lower ranking wife of Pharaoh Mentuhotep II of the 11th dynasty. Her tomb (DBXI.9) and small decorated chapel were found in her husband's Deir el-Bahari temple complex,[1] behind the main building, along with the tombs of five other ladies, Ashayet, Henhenet, Kemsit, Sadeh and Mayet. She and three other women of the six bore queenly titles, and most of them were priestesses of Hathor, so it is possible that they were buried there as part of the goddess's cult, but it is also possible that they were the daughters of nobles the king wanted to keep an eye upon.
Her stone sarcophagus is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.[1] The queen is depicted with short hair, she is sitting on a chair, a servant girl is arranging her hair, while a servant is poring her a drink.[2] On her sarcophagus her only titles are priestess and King's Ornament (a title for noble ladies at court), her queenly title appears only in her chapel. Also in her tomb were six miniature wax figurines depicting Kawit, in small wooden coffins, these may be early versions of ushabti.[3]
Her titles were: King's Beloved Wife (ḥmt-nỉswt mrỉỉ.t=f ), King's Ornament (ẖkr.t-nỉswt), King's Sole Ornament (ẖkr.t-nỉswt wˁtỉ.t), Priestess of Hathor (ḥm.t-nṯr ḥwt-ḥrw).[4]

Milk is offered to Kawit by an attendant who says, "For your Ka, Mistress. Drink what I give you." Transliteration of the glyphs: "n kA.T Hnwt swr di.i n.T"

Sarcophagus of Queen Kawit

The sarcophagus of Queen Kawit, who was the wife of King Montuhotep the Second, was one of the most noteworthy in terms of the low-relief sculpture in the Theban court.

The outer faces of this limestone sarcophagus are decorated with scenes from daily life, such as the queen applying makeup. Other scenes depict offerings and the afterlife.

At the place of Queen Kawit's head, there is a palace facade with the central doors decorated with Udjat eyes to permit the deceased to communicate with the world of living.

The elongated bodies and the coarse facial features reflect the Theban ideal of feminine beauty.
