5.2 Summary

The scene shows a garden with a pool surrounded by shrubs and trees. There is a combination of profile and plan views – different representational codes within the same overall ‘scene’. The goddess ‘Nut’ is shown in the top right corner. She is associated with the sky and with rebirth, and the west is the land of the dead. She is welcoming Nebamun into the afterlife.
