HARPERS OF RAMESSES III (Thebes-20th Dynasty)
The two blind musicians are playing intricately decorated harps
for a group of gods. The harps' base is adorned with a likeness of
the king with an elaborate collar and a blue-lotus flower. This
painting is from the tomb of Ramesses III, uncovered in 1769 by the
Scottish traveler James Bruce; the tomb became known as the
Harpers' Tomb because of this unique image.
