HISTORIC PROVENANCE


The Carpet Akhtihotep is inspired by reliefs depicting personified estates (ca. 2575-2551 B.C.) from the tomb of Akhtihotep, a royal official and priest. Now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, these limestone reliefs portray figures, representing agricultural estates or farms, carrying baskets of offerings to the deceased atop their heads. The sand-and ivory-toned 300 cm. x 400 cm. Carpet Akhtihotep, handwoven in a wool-and-cotton mix, takes its design from the images on the original.
