Wooden model a sailing boat

This boat is one of several models from the tomb of Khety. Two boat models were buried with Khety: one without a sail, which sailed north to south, and this one that travelled south to north, catching the wind in its sail. Boats were also important as they would carry a deceased individual to and from Abydos, the mythical resting place of Osiris.
