Kormysheva Eleonora E.

The author shares her observations about the symbolism of some scenes in private tombs of the Old Kingdom. She argues with A.O. Bolshakov's views on the two languages of cul-ture expressed in his articles published in the VDI, as well as with his other ideas concerning the tomb scenes interpreted as realistic ones.
