Leather fragment of erotic scene
This fragment is special for two reasons; 1. the colour is still mostly present and (besides the obvious tearing) there is very little damage. 2. is the scene that is being depicted. It is a scene in which music is made by a priestess while a naked male dancer is performing a rite. Because this piece was found near the temple of Hathor at Deir el Bahari, we may assume that this piece was intended for the goddess Hathor, the goddess of fertility.
Found at Thebes, Upper Egypt, during the clearance of tomb MMA 815.
Egyptian, New Kingdom, 18th dynasty, reign of Ahmose or Hatsepsut, 1550 - 1458 BC.
