Description

The hieroglyphs on this smartphone case are adapted from the inscription on the lower portion of a funerary stela (ca. 1910 BC) for the treasurer Rehuerdjersen, commissioned by his brother about forty years after his death. The inscription lists the names of Rehuerdjersens relatives, reflecting their pride in such an illustrious family member. The ancient Egyptians usually wrote a name with sound signs followed by either a seated man or woman hieroglyph, denoting in the case of this stela a male or female relative.

Art History

Hieroglyphs are largely sound signs, but some signs could stand for what they depict, while others were used to explain what kind of word is meant. The hieroglyph that depicts a seated man is used as such a sense sign behind the given name of a male person, while the seated woman was used behind the name of a female relative. The hieroglyphs on this inscription all face to the right, indicating that it was written from right to left.
