Tomb Chapel of Nebenmaat, Deir el-Medina

The tomb chapel of Nebenmaat, which nestles between those of his father Amennakht and his brother Khaemteri, can be accurately dated to the first half of the reign of Ramesses II on account of the data contained in mostly intact painted scenes on the tomb walls. The burial chamber of Nebenmaat and his wife Mertseger differs from the other two: its walls were painted in monochrome manner - the background is white with scenes painted in yellow, red and black colours. This style of decoration is unique in Egypt: among the 53 decorated tombs at Deir el-Medina only 22 are monochromous.
