NEBAMUN TOMB FRESCOES (1 of 11 restored Nebamun tomb frescoes) -- Nebamun was an Egyptian "scribe & counter of grain" during the New Kingdom. His tomb in Thebes, the location of which is now lost, featured the famous Pond in a Garden false fresco painting. Nebamun's name is translated as "My Lord is Amun" and he is thought to have lived circa 1500 BCE. The paintings were hacked from the tomb wall and purchased by a British collector who in turn sold them to the British Museum in 1821.
