Not strictly Valley of the Kings or Luxor, but since she has been in the news, I popped in to the British Museum last week to photograph Queen Mutnodjmet's canopic jar - I'd looked online but couldn't find a good photo. There are four jars in the case and the labeling is imprecise but I believe this is the correct jar. If I've made a blooper, I'm sure somebody will correct me.
(If anybody needs it, the original image is 3000x2000 so it would blow up reasonably well.)
In response to Tim ...
Based on your comment, then it's probably this one. But the label is out of synch then with the exhibits. I didn't take a decent picture of that one. I want to go back with a faster lens for some of the sculpture (so I can blur out the background) so I can take a better one if that's the one. Thanks for your help!
I love Ancient Egypt, enjoy backgammon chouette, photography and travel ... and I'm trying to get my late father's photos online. Please visit my main profile where you will also find links to Facebook and more about my interests.
