Thanks to Steve Wagner and Chris Townsend for this link.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art invites you to hear the fascinating story of the Tomb of Perneb. Acquired from the Egyptian government in 1913, the tomb was constructed approximately 4,000 years ago, when the great pyramids were built. Brought to New York and reconstructed, the mastaba, the upper chamber of the tomb, now welcomes visitors into the museum’s impressive gallery of Egyptian art.
