Our clever pop-up card depicts a funeral boat returning to Thebes from Abydos, site of the major cult center of the god Osiris. Created early in the reign of Amenemhat 1 (ca. 1981 1975 B.C.), the original boat is fashioned in wood, plaster, paint, linen twine, and cloth.

Boats of this particular type appear in representations of the "pilgrimage to Abydos" that was part of the ancient Egyptian funerary ritual from the Middle Kingdom onwards. Its companion boat sailing toward Abydos is also in The Met collection.
