THE FACE IN THE SHROUD
From the 18th Dtnasty Tomb of Puimere at Thebes
Sometimes the tekenu is shown in the funeral procession with his face just
showing thru the
shroud. He appears to be sitting up on the sledge as it is being dragged to the
tomb. It is
possible that he is being shown from above and is actually in a fetal position
on the sledge.
