I had mentioned before that the Boston Museum of Fine Arts has some of the finds from the tomb of Djehutynakht on display.

I saw the display recently and found the exhibit really interesting. Panels of his coffin are on display. This site has a picture for instance:

I have been trying to find an image online of the other long panel, because I found that one really fascinating. The panel shown in the article is beautifully decorated and the patterns on the left are wonderfully detailed.

But the other panel reminded me of what would later be sisplayed on the tomb walls. There were registers with all kinds of offerings. There were boxes, collars, what looked like shields covered with cow hide, long containers that looked like arrow containers, etc.

The one head found in the tomb looks interesting. The surface resembles a thin layer of gauze. There is a sense that the facial shape is well preserved.

Another item is a beautiful standing figure made of wood posing with a tall staff or walking stick.
