Scene of Sety I.
In another scene from the Temple of Sety I at Abydos, in the shrine of
Isis in her small chapel, the king offers a tray of food to the goddess.
Among the foodstuffs can be seen two plucked and drawn ducks, several
figs, a pomegranate, a bowl of round fruits or berries, slabs of fresh
meat, and round cakes or bread loaves. Below the king's elbow is the beginning
of the hieroglyphic label to the scene, the verb f3.t, "raising,
lifting." The lowest sign in the group, the determinative of the
verb, is a reduced image of the scene itself, a small figure of the king
lifting up a small tray of food. In Egyptian decoration, scenes and inscriptions
are inextricably intertwined, and often interact with each other.
