  • Bowl decorated with marsh scenes, late Dynasty XIX–Third Intermediate Period (ca. 1188–712 b.c.)
    From Bubastis
    Silver

    Rogers Fund, 1907 (07.228.20)

    The elaborate repoussé decorations on this bowl illustrate various scenes associated with marsh life: herding animals, cutting papyrus, harvesting fruit, catching birds, and paddling skiffs. These illustrations are variations on traditional scenes of birth and renewal that are well known from tomb and temple walls.
