Fragment of a painted wooden coffin

The coffin shows a procession of mourners who consisted of friends, servants and family of the deceased. The missing sections are the result of termite damage. Women are shown with locked hair; the main figure in the centre cries and beats her breast as a symbol of mourning. Four men carry the coffin and a fifth stands behind an animal of some kind.
