This chapter explores the decoration of the recently discovered vestibule in the tomb of Karakhamun. It looks at eight scenes—including grape gathering, musicians, and plowing—exploring composition, iconography, imagery, artistic influences, and subject matter. It concludes by drawing attention to three key features: that New-Kingdom inspired features increases throughout the Twenty-sixth Dynasty; the ‘mistakes’ in the representation of objects, attire, or action; and the progression away from narrative and toward sacralization.

Keywords:   Karakhamun, Tomb decoration, Composition, Imagery, Iconography, Twenty-sixth Dynasty
