Although plundered in ancient times, the tomb of the royal chief steward Meketre was not fully mapped until 1920, when the Museum’s excavator, Herbert Winlock, and a team of workman cleaned out the accumulated debris in its rooms and passageways. During this cleaning operation, they discovered a hidden chamber filled with almost perfectly preserved models and two statues, one of which is this masterpiece of Egyptian wood carving.
