The Servant Statues

The nobles of ancient Egypt filled their tombs with statues of their servants to work for them in the hereafter. The servants would work in place of the nobles so the nobles could enjoy the afterlife.

The tomb of Niankh-Pepi, found at Meir, contained a large number of statues depicting male and female servants carrying out various tasks, such as preparing flour, baking bread, roasting fowls, or brewing beer.

The most unique of these statues is the one depicting the servant who is carrying his master's bags .
