Product Description

Egyptian False Door Reproduction

A false door serves as a doorway for the soul. The design evolved from the decoration on offering niches in early mud brick tombs.

This false door plaque is from the mastaba erected over the burial chamber of Irty-Ptah, a priest of Ptah and Scribe of the Divine Offerings in the Temple of Ptah at Memphis. The deceased extends his left hand toward an offering table.

The text is a standard funerary inscription. It is a wish for funerary offerings and reads, "A 1000 of alabaster, a 1000 of incense, a 1000 of libations, a 1000 of meat, a 1000 of fowl, a 1000 of beer for the revered one, Irty-Ptah."

Comes with information and ready for the wall or desk display. Click to enlarge.
