This is an original 1910 color lithograph of hieroglyphs of precious vessels brought as tribute by foreigners from the tomb of Menkheperraseneb (Men-Khar-Re-Seneb) who was a High Priest of Amun during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmose III which was about 3,450 years ago. We believe this tomb may be located in the Theban Necropolis which lies on the west bank of the Nile. It is across from the city of Luxor, Egypt.
