The Scribe Unsu

This sculpture represents a marriage of Unsu who probably lived in the reign of Thutmose III, who was one of the most important and powerful monarchs of the three thousand years of pharaonic civilization. During the course of his reign, the Egyptian empire reached its maximum territorial extension.

Unsu was an official, the official grain counter of the temple of the god Amun in Thebes. For the number of sculptures and paintings, we see the importance represented by a grain counter at that time in Egypt.

Here he is observed in a solemn position with his wife. All the paintings that are observed around are those of his funeral chapel that show scenes of his life. He is seen supervising the cultivation of cereals, from plowing to harvesting and transporting the grain of water.
