The inscriptions on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Hieroglyphs depicting water, birds, a snake, and a jackal, were discovered on a false door belonging to Metjetji, a nobleman who worked in the court of King Unis during ancient Egypt’s 5th Dynasty (circa 2353 — 2323 B.C.E). The square barrel evokes the shape of an obelisk, which were commonly decorated with hieroglyphs describing an important event or pharaoh’s achievement. Become a modern-day scribe and record your own history and accomplishments with this smooth-writing, fun and unique fountain pen from The Met's Art Pen collection.
