Fragments of reliefs and numerous objects of everyday use combined together in the Nature and Everyday Life section bear witness to the mastery of Egyptian craftsmanship and show the sources of iconographic inspirations for their makers. The forms and symbolism of the artefacts mirror the abundant fauna and flora of the Nile valley, the Nile delta and the surrounding deserts – from the personification of the inundation of the Nile, with a papyrus symbolising the Lower Egypt on its head, through a monkey holding a small kohl-pot.
