This tapestry is the first of two versions. This version is woven across the warp with the title. It it from a quick sketch I did while in the mummy room at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. I was fascinated by the mummies and did several sketches while being jostled by people squeezing between me and the mummy case. The head is resting on a small bundle of linen and the body is covered by a linen sheet.
Linen weft, seine twine warp.
