Tombs of Inty-Shedu
Transcript of Tombs of Inty-Shedu
Inty-Shedu also know as Jity Sdw. He was a skilled craftsmen who was an overseer of the goddess Neith.
If you have a tomb back in the Fourth Dynasty (2613 to 2494 BC) which meant it was a gift from the king. On either side of the tomb was hieroglyphic to curse the person/people who disturbed the place so it will protect him.
The statues where in a hidden door so it was hard to find the statues. The statues represent his society and skilled craftsmen. There where originally 5 statues but one was made of wood so it disintegrate. Which left 4 statues made out of limestone.
They were place standing to sitting to standing (left to right). The 4 statues all have mustache on then which was a rare thing in the Old Kingdom. The one sitting in the middle is how he looked like when he was died. In his right hand was a roll of linen or leather which meant authority (the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience).
Inty-Shedu's tomb was found in the year 1992. It was built about 4,500 years ago into the desert cliff know as the Upper Cemetery. Located southeast of the Giza near the Great Sphinx but, is now located in the Museum of Cairo.
