The moment Anubis brings Sennedjem's mummy back to life.
Sennedjem lived in the shadow of his tomb. From his house he would have been able to see the tomb chapel being erected over the tomb's entrance on the hill opposite his village; a daily reassurance that the place where he planned to spend eternity was progressing well.
Sennedjem's house was at the south-westerly corner of the village of Deir el-Medina, the village of elite craftsmen who carved and decorated the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, about a kilometre away.
Sennedjem was one of the elite workers who lived during the 19th Dynasty and worked on the grand tombs of Pharaohs Seti I and Ramesses II. In his time off he worked on his own, today known as TT 1 (Theban Tomb Number 1).
This was a family vault. Sennedjem shared his 'house of eternity' with his wife Iyneferty, their children and grandchildren. In all, twenty mummies were stacked in the tomb's burial chamber.
The chamber is decorated with colourful religious scenes featuring Sennedjem and his family appearing before the gods for judgement and admittance into the afterlife.
The north wall displays this scene showing Sennedjem's mummy lying on a lion-headed bed, his head towards the west. Anubis stands over the mummy and 'warms' his heart, which magically starts beating again.
Surrounding the image (outside of the photo) are columns of hieroglyphs from Chapter 1 of the Book of the Dead, which begins with the title, "Chapter of going to the Tribunal of Osiris on the day of burial of Sennedjem". Interestingly the scribe painting the text ran out of space and the chapter is interrupted in the middle of a sentence!
