Stela of Ihefy & Horus

This painted wooden stela depicts a man (his name is identified as Ihefy and his title was "the doorkeeper of the house of Amun") adoring the hawk-headed god Horus. Horus sits on a throne and holds a flail. There is a red and blue lotus bloom over a yellow stand in the middle of the scene. From Egypt, 22nd Dynasty, 945–720 BCE. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, London (with thanks to The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, UCL).
