Georges Perrot and Charles Chipiez

CARVE LIKE AN EGYPTIAN. Nineteenth-century drawings by Georges Perrot and Charles Chipiez highlight the prominent Egyptian-style cornice running along the roof of the tomb. The cornice, together with the gabled and pyramidal roof, reflects Egyptian influence, imitating the style of New Kingdom Egyptian chapels. Like its Egyptian counterparts, the façade of the Tomb of Pharaoh’s Daughter was most likely decorated with colorful paint.
