soul house

This " soul house" belongs to a category of terracotta objects which have been found in the modest tombs of Rifa and which had the same function as an offering table. The model represents a rectangular house with a portico of three columns and a staircase leading to the first floor. Two openings, a door and a window, lead into the antechamber where one finds two columns and an opening serving as the door. The terrace is divided into three compartments. On the front of the ground floor, there is an indication of offerings and of a bowl. It could be that this model took the form of the large rupestrine tombs of high dignitaries.
Inventary number E.3177
