Egypt Old Postcard Thebes Mortuary Chapel of Ramose Vizir, Wife Brother DaughterVintage Egyptian Old Colour Postcard. Africa Upper Egypt Haute-Egypte. Temple Wall Carvings. Thebes - The Mortuary Chapel of Ramose, Vizir of Egypt during the early years of Amenhotep the Fourth (Akhnaton). - A representation of Ramose seated beside his wife Ptahmeryt, behind whom are Amenhotep, the brother of Ramose, and his daughter very beautifully and delicately excuted in relief, and cut in the natural lime-stone. It is worth while to note that the reliefs have never been painted according to the usual custom, and that the eyes are painted in thin black lines pointed at the ends.
