The adjoining right-hand section of this relief (now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Zurich) shows the goddess Hathor leadingthis family into the presence of Osiris, the god of the dead. Other sections of this tomb are in the Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio, and Staatliche Museen, Berlin. The work is exceptionally fine for tomb sculpture of the reign of Ramesses II.
