Sarcophagus of Pharaoh Ai

This painted sketch reveals a large sarcophagus made of rose granite and elaborately hand carved. Their are winged goddesses on all four corners, extending their wings downward toward the mummy of Pharoah Ai. The sarcophagus still lies open and broken on the spot. Originally drawn by Faucher-Gudin, after the drawing of Prisse d'Avenues.
