Wooden model of butchers from the tomb of Khety

This wooden model is one of five found in the tomb of Khety. Models like these depicted scenes of daily life. This one depicts three men slaughtering a bull, perhaps in preparation for the funeral banquet. Alternatively, the bull could provide a continual source of meat for the deceased in the afterlife.
