As vizier and husband of King Teti's eldest daughter, Mereruka enjoyed a very special status and built an unusually rich mastaba. This volume deals with the architecture and art of the exterior of his mastaba and with those of rooms A1-A12 of his magnificent chapel. The variety of themes depicted in this section of the chapel include, fishing and fowling, life in the marshlands, gardening, desert hunt, metal workers and other professions, rendering accounts, poultry house, preparation of food and drink and bringing offerings, entertainment with the harp, etc. The tomb is an essential source of information for most research in the Old Kingdom. In addition to the new and complete record in line drawings and colour photographs, the present book includes studies of the architectural features and the colour conventions in the tomb as well as detailed tabulation of titles, individuals and themes represented. Includes 50 folded line drawings.
