Abstract:This dissertation examines a group of rock-cut tombs in an Old Kingdom (c. 2680-2190 BCE) provincial cemetery called Qubbet et Hawa, associated with the ancient town of Elephantine (modern Aswan). These elite tombs share a unique system of image and text programs; this system has three distinct characteristics: (1) the layout of the programs in small areas of carved relief, (2) the stylistic diversity among the images, and (3) the thematic focus of the scene content on identified offering figures. Using an agency-based method, this dissertation argues that this program system is the intentional and meaningful product of the tomb owners, artisans, and local community at Elephantine. The introduction outlines the methodological approach to the material, including sections on data and context, agency and structure, and locality and community. Chapter 1 describes the social and historical context in which the tombs were built, and Chapter 2 presents the relevant data including the composition of the cemetery and its setting in the local landscape, a definition of the program system, and a scene-by-scene description of each tomb program. Chapter 3 examines the stylistic diversity among the images and explores the meaning of stylistic variation within Egyptian visual culture. Chapter 4 investigates the relationship between the programs' thematic focus on identified offering figures and the theme of identity, both of individuals and of the community. In conclusion, the dissertation argues that this community of people, existing far from the capital of their country and in proximity to the competing Nubian culture, intentionally developed visually unique monuments in an effort to satisfy their need to define and express a local community structure that brought order to their particular section of the chaotic universe.
