Block from a tomb of a craftsman. New Kingdom, late Dynasty 18 – early Dynasty 19, ca. 1333–1292 B. C.

The relief shows a man kneeling at a small altar with a dead bird and smoking incense on it.
According to the inscription, these are the offerings to Osiris. The name of the depicted is
unknown, and the only remaining information is a part of his title – "a creator of iron items".
Judging by the quality of the relief, this man was not an average craftsman, but a high rank artist.
