Osiris speaks: “You have been such a dedicated royal scribe, Nakht, that Maat and I are bestowing upon you and your wife Tjuiu, a widescreen HD TV!”
What this actually is: A vignette from the ancient Egytian funerary text known as the Book of the Dead.
The royal scribe Nakht and his wife Tjuiu in their garden worshipping Osiris (seated) and Maat (standing). The humans and deities overlook a pool surrounded by trees (c 1300 BCE).
Osiris, stop it.
