Often referred to as the 'Butcher's Tomb' the decorated tomb of Irukapta in the Unis Cemetery at Saqqara, has been fully recorded for publication. A well-preserved example of Old Kingdom rock architecture, it retains much of its painted decoration. An outstanding feature is the large number of engaged statues which provide valuable information on the progressive steps in the execution of rock-cut statuary and comparisons of artistic and architectural features are made with other near-contemporary tombs.
