This is an accurate copy of an exquisite low relief engraving carved 4500 years ago! This true-to-life art depicts a lively scene on the banks of the Nile with graceful butterfly and waterfowl that could have been sculpted yesterday. It was carved into a limestone facing in a tomb at the time of the Fifth Dynasty under its first king Userkaf c. 2460 B.C. Found at Saqqara, Egypt, in a mastaba - an oblong tomb structure - this picture is one of the earliest of this type of reality paintings to come down to us through the ages.
