Egyptian Relief Fragment

The above relief fragment was photographed in the Egyptian area of the Vatican Museums in the Vatican City. It was one of the many pieces that caught my eye when flicking through the guide book I bought. It is made of limestone, but most fascinating of all it dates back to between 2575 and 2134 BC (making this piece of artwork well over 4000 years old!)
