Wooden models My favourite objects in Egyptian museums are not so much the mummies as the wonderful wooden models. In the Middle Kingdom, it was fashionable to be buried with models of your favourite scenes. Many of them were boats, both for travelling up and down the Nile and special funerary boats in which you passed from life to death. This is one of the prize possessions of the British Museum, a boat which not only has a large sail but also in team of rowers with a large oar at the back of the boat for steering. Here is a similar scene, this time in the Ashmolean Museum showing the sail being raised, though there is also a small team of rowers and at the back, a small shelter with the master and his wife sitting outside. Most of the boats were not sailing boats, but rowing boats as in this model, with a single passenger at the west end and a lookout man standing in a tub at the front.
