Description

This modern reproduction papyrus of a relief from the west wall of Seti Shrine at Abydos shows the god Inmutef burning incense before a mummified Seti. Inmutef, depicted here as a young Ramses II, performs the Opening of the Mouth Ritual on the mummy of his father, which would allow him to breathe in the Afterlife. Behind him, Isis is shown with a sistrum and a “menat” necklace, which were used to create sacred music.
