trade mission

Just look at the creativity in this work - especially the curves and shape of the person third from the left! I don't remember where I took this picture in the ROM, but I think it was from a copy of the relief in Hatshepsut's Temple, the one at Deir el-Bahri designed by Senenmut. If it is from that display, then these are the people she sent from Egypt to Punt on a trade mission some 3500 years ago. Next year I just have to go and see the original!
