Mastaba of Nefer-her-ptah (The Bird Tomb)

A mastaba that belonged to Nefer-her-en-Ptah who went during the 5th Dynasty. His principal title was "the head of the stylists of the Great House". It is a small tomb of just one room mounted with interesting but undone paintings that are finely executed. It disagrees from the other graves for several concludes. First, the paintings are done in red ochre, then adjusted and finished in grey on which the sculptors had not begun to run the reliefs. The decorations show scenes from agricultural life, such as milking, checking hearts, wine pressing, gathering of Acer pseudoplatanus figs, and the cultivation of gardens. On the crowning panel of the west wall, there is a signal big scene of bird hunting that gives the tomb the name, the bird tomb.
