Paintings Discovered Inside the Coffin of An Egyptian Mummy

Ancient paintings have been discovered inside a coffin of a 3,000 year-old Egyptian mummy called Ta-Kr-Hb, the discovery was made by a group of Scottish conservators.

The Scottish conservators made the incredible discovery during the conservation work of Ta-Kr-Hb, pronounced ‘takerheb’, which is believed to be a priestess or princess from Thebes.

The discovery was made after the body was lifted out of the tomb for the first time in over 100 years, excessive work was required to make sue that the mummy’s condition doesn’t deteriorate even more.

Conservators found painted figures of an Egyptian goddess on both the internal and external bases of Ta-Kr-Hb’s coffin.

‘’It was a great surprise to see these paintings appear. We had never had a reason to lift the whole thing so high that we could see the underneath of the trough and had never lifted the mummy out before and didn’t expect to see anything there’’ Dr Mark Hall, collections officer at Perth Museum and Art Gallery said.

“The key thing we wanted to achieve was to stabilize the body so it didn’t deteriorate any more so it has been re-wrapped and then we wanted to stabilize the trough and upper part of the coffin which we’ve done.” He added.

“One of the key things is just physically doing the work so we have a better idea of the episodes Ta-Kr-Hb went through in terms of grave robbers and later collectors in the Victorian times, so we can explore these matters more fully and we can share that with the public,” Hall said.
