Engraver reign of *Ramesses II 1304-1237 BC.
    The scenes in the tombs, belonging to craftsmen who lived at the royal workmen's town of Deir el Medina at Thebes, have preserved a vivid and colourful account of their activities and aspirations.
    Ipuy was an engraver during the reign of *Ramesses II and the scenes in his tomb at Deir el Medina illustrate a range of subjects, including the manufacture and preparation of his funerary furniture and his funeral procession. There are also agricultural activities such as wine-pressing, and a famous scene shows Ipuy working a shaduf (ancient water device) to bring water from the river to nurture the plants in his garden, while his pet dog looks on.
