The three-dimensional funerary models housed in burial chambers of the late Old Kingdom to the end of the Middle Kingdom display a number of similarities with the so-called scenes of daily life on tomb-chapel walls. A comparison of the two media can help to classify otherwise unidentifiable artworks. One such model, housed in the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, displays many parallels with scenes depicting the theme of the rendering of accounts. This article examines these similarities in order to determine if the model should rightly be understood as a representation of this theme.
