DescriptionThis fragment from the 11th Dynasty temple of Nebhepetre Montuhotep is difficult to interpret, but may show part of a ship's rigging, and perhaps a cabin.  The current orientation may not be the correct one.
Though part of a naval scene, it is not possible to determine to which specific kind of scene (boat procession, trading, warfare) this piece belonged.
