This beautifully detailed scene is a wonderful example of the dress of the Ancient Egyptians. They’re wearing typical robes of the time and sandals. The women are wearing beautiful long wigs and perfume cones with lotus flowers. The perfume cones were made of wax and would melt in the heat letting out the beautiful fragrance. They’re sipping their cool drinks on a hot sunny day while enjoying nature. The man is picking figs from the tree that the birds are enjoying. The big bird that’s hovering overhead is a protector and represents Horus, the falcon headed deity.
