Discovered in the tomb of the Deir el-Medina workman Karo, “stonemason of Amun in Thebes,” this funerary stela depicts him pouring water on food he has offered to Osiris, Ptah, Anubis, Horus and Hathor. In the middle panel, he does the same for his father, mother and other family members. Below, it is he, with his wife and brother, who receive offerings from his children.
