Howard Carter's drawing of The Festival Procession of Opet

These drawings by Howard Carter show the Festival Procession of Opet in the Luxor Temple. They were commissioned by Alan H. Gardiner, and this series of ink and pencil line-drawings were created by Carter during 1916-17, but were never completed by him and were left unpublished until their presentation here. The images are of the reliefs in the Colonnade Hall and are composed from accurate scale drawings which we have digitally joined together below.
