Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts features eight reliefs from the tomb of a high-rank official of the Old
Kingdom, the master of the "house of silver" (i.e. royal treasurer) Isi. In one of the reliefs Isi is shown
sitting on a chair at a sacrificial table. Making sacrifices was one of the basic elements of the tomb cult
and the main condition of the deceased's afterlife. Different types of bread and meat, a low stool for
offerings, and vessels for ablution are depicted on the table and near it. Two border scenes in the right
part of the relief show mortuary priests: one of them carries a bull's leg, and the other one makes ritual
cleansing with a broom. An inscription under the table says: one thousand (a lotus-shaped hieroglyph)
vessels of beer, one thousand breads, one thousand storks, one thousand geese.
