Op deze afbeelding zie je het Reliëf uit graf Horemheb. Hij hoorde tot de groep hoge militairen rond Toetanchamon en volgde hem na diens dood zelfs op als farao van Egypte. Dit reliëf is er één uit een reeks die afkomstig is uit het eerste graf dat hij voor zichzelf liet maken. Hij was toen nog generaal in Sakkara. Uiteindelijk kreeg hij een koningsgraf in Thebe.

The Egyptologist who unwrapped "Lady Rai" called her "the most perfect example of embalming that has come down to us from the ... early 18th Dynasty, or perhaps even of any period." Her beautifully braided hair was protected in its own bandages. Don't believe the hype! Ancient Egypt was just as black as the rest of Africa!!! After all Egypt is not an island on to itself as some would have you think. It really is part of the mother-land. What more proof do you need?
