I thought I would share this for the fun of it:
There's a print in one of the Mastaba books showing a festival in honor of the goddess Hathor.
It's a line drawing, and I did a bit of research into colors used in the tombs.
The hieroglyphs for instance were drawn in a variety of colors in the tomb of Meresankh. I colored the inked sketch with watercolor.
I'm still not happy with the colors of the men. They are more reddish brown, but here it goes
In the first register we see a group of young men playing a game referred to as "prisoner" in the book. Next to them are two men wrestling. On the right are the two sons (Qar and Idu) of the tomb owner doing some fight possibly involving daggers?
Below that we see a group of female dancers. The one on the right is Bendjet, the daughter of the tomb owner Idu.
On the third register we see men plaing some game which may be related to senet.
The fourth register shows the musicians. The two girls on the right are Iry and Nebet, daughters of Idu.
Below that we see food preparation.
Idu himself is shown on the right. His image has been recarved at least once. I think it gives a funny sense of motion
It looks to me like he is waving a stick and tapping his arm on the armrest
I just loved this scene showing these festivities.
