Dug entirely out of the rocky wall, the Tomb of Irukaptah is located in the section of Unas Pyramid, in the Necropolis of Saqqara. The tomb is known as the 'the Butchers Tomb'. Its owner was a chief of the butchers in the Royal Court during the Fifth Dynasty. In the eastern part of the tomb, in which at least ten family members of the owner are also buried, ten large colorful high-relief statues were carved in the rock, using a technique found elsewhere in only a few other Giza tombs. Above them appears the famous scene of butchering and various stages of the slaughtering of oxen, which takes place in the presence of the deceased.
