Description

Presented paper: Aspects of regional style in the funerary cartonnage from Kellis


Excavations in the Kellis 1 cemetery at Ismant el-Kharab (Dakhleh Oasis) brought to light a substantial amount of funerary cartonnage. The decorative program of the pieces suggests the presence of a specific regional style used in the Dakhleh Oasis, but not exclusively. In particular, similarities have been noticed with the cartonnage excavated in different sites in the neighbouring oasis of Kharga (El-Deir, ‘Ain Dabashiya, ‘Ain el-Labakha, Dush). This paper intended to preliminarily investigate this particular aspect by examining the most prominent features of the cartonnage production of the area.
