Archaism is a key factor in Late Period Theban tomb decoration, and this chapter explores this in the tombs of Karakhamun and Karabasken. It looks at the style of carving, the use of imagery and iconography, and techniques and innovations employed. This chapter concludes that the tomb was decorated in a relatively short period of time by a large number of building and artistic teams, yet was never completed.
