Description

A cartonnage foot covering made for Shebenwepet, a priestess of Horus-the-Child. The four pairs of scenes, in descending order depict Horus; the revival of Shebenwepet and Horus; Shebenwepet in the act of adoring the cow of Hathor and Ptah; and finally the falcon-spirits of the horizon with Anubis and Horus. It dates to the Twenty-second Dynasty. Shebenwepet was the daughter of Djeddjehutiiwefankh. The style is Theban, but the worship of Horus the child is not associated with Thebes.
