This woman sits on the ground with one knee raised. Against the hammock of cloth formed by her skirt stretched over her knee she holds a child whose yellow skin indicates she is a girl. With one hand the woman holds the child's head, while with the other she offers her breast to the child. The child's head is tilted back, either to gaze at the woman as nursing children may do, or perhaps in frustration as she cannot reach the breast. Behind the woman a red-painted and therefore male child kneels and pulls her second breast beneath her arm so that he can nurse, too.

Among Old Kingdom serving statuettes, women with chldren are a non-standard subject; indeed this is the only example depicting nursing. Serving women with children are seen more often in reliefs: in one tomb a child clings to his mother's back while she grinds grain, and nearby another woman nurses a chlld while she tends baking bread. The fact that the woman in the statuette here wears a white kerchief as do so many of the women in food preparation tasks, presumably to keep flour and such from their hair, may imply that this woman was involved in such tasks when she takes a moment to care for the children.

After a lapse of some three centuries in the construction of decorated tombs at Thebes, high officials of the late 25th dynasty and the 26th dynasty again built elaborate tombs in Thebes, and decorated them with fine limestone reliefs. Earlier Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom temples and tombs in the Asasif valley offered subject matter and inflected their style.
The vizier Nespekashuty took over the terrace of an old Middle Kingdom tomb cut into the north cliff at Deir el-Bahri near the Dynasty 11 temple of Mentuhotep II and the Dynasty 18 temple of Hatshepsut. This scene from his tomb depicts an episode from Nespekashuty's funeral, in which the barge bearing his coffin and the officiating mortuary priest clad in leopard skin is towed across the river to the necropolis on the west bank. The scene is particularly influenced by 18th dynasty tombs, but is also very close in some respects to the parallel scene in the contemporary tomb of Mentuemhat, suggesting a possible relationship of the artistic teams for the two tombs. The tomb's creators seem to have also felt a particular affinity for the manneristically elongated eyes and brows of the lively Theban 11th dynasty style.
Work on his tomb was never finished, and many of the extant reliefs show varying degrees of completion, ranging from preliminary drawings in red paint to finely carved reliefs. Several of these intermediate stages are preserved in this relief fragment

Tile with persea fruit and leaves

Period: New Kingdom, Amarna Period

Dynasty: Dynasty 18

Reign: reign of Akhenaten

Date: ca. 1353–1336 B.C.

Geography: From Egypt, Middle Egypt, Amarna (Akhetaten), Royal Palace of Akhenaten, Petrie excavations, 1891–92

Medium: Polychrome faience

Dimensions: H. 6.5 × W. 5.5 cm (2 9/16 × 2 3/16 in.)

Credit Line: Purchase, Edward S. Harkness Gift, 1926

Accession Number: 26.7.942

Description

Among the faience figural tiles found in the area of the Great Palace, the ceremonial palace, was this one depicting yellow persea fruit and its leaves. Many other tiles are known depicting birds, flowers, and fish, among other subjects. The clear fine colors of the plants created in glaze would have mimicked plentiful gardens and marshes, frequent themes also in relief and wall paintings (see 30.4.136) created for royal surroundings.

Elaborate decoration of columns and relief with inlaid materials is well-attested from Amarna, and indeed has a long tradition in Egypt. Faience tiles like this one, with an originally semi-round contour, may have been inlaid into stone wall reliefs. There are Amarna architectural reliefs that could accept the tiles, but no tiles have actually been found still attached.
