Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts features eight reliefs from the tomb of a high-rank official of the Old
Kingdom, the master of the "house of silver" (i.e. royal treasurer) Isi. In two reliefs Isi is depicted
standing with a staff in his hand. According to the ancient Egyptian artistic tradition, his head, body, and
legs are side-drawn, and shoulder and an eye are depicted en face. The face of Isi is not an actual portrait,
but a generalized ideal image of a middle-aged Egyptian man.
Isi is depicted with his children – son Ni-kau-hor and daughter Hetep-nebu. They are shorter than their
father, but this is not an indication of their age – the image of the man buried in the tomb is deliberately
emphasized. An inscription over the image of Isi says: "Master of the house of silver Isi", the one near the
picture of his son means "Ni-kau-hor", and near his daughter – "Hetep-nebu".
