News from the Tomb of the Sculptor Ipuy (TT 217). A Special Insight into a Late Bronze Age Family’s Microcosmos at Deir el-Medina, v. Kathrin Gabler,

The rock-cut tomb of the sculptor Ipuy, TT 217, is located in the Western Necropolis of Deir el-Medina. Built in the first half of the reign of Ramesses II (1279–1250 BC), its chapel features polychrome wall paintings that depict various professional scenes of an exceptional nature. Therefore, TT 217 is special among the 53 decorated tombs on-site. The funerary complex has been only partially investigated and documented, especially by Norman de Garis Davies while working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Davies 1927).

The lecture will highlight the microcosm surrounding the tomb and the family of Ipuy and show the first results after fieldwork in 2021 and 2022, with a particular focus on the documentation of over 1000 wall and statue fragments collected by Davies in the early 20th century. TT 217 will be comprehensively re-investigated, documented, contextualized and published in the next years with modern techniques and methods, as part of the mission Deir el-Médina, in cooperation with the Ifao Cairo.
