Ancient Egyptian royal family: the fourth dynasty Prince Rahotep (old Kingdom)- son of Sneferu
The first two pyramids were built as step pyramids, but at the end of his reign Sneferu completed the Meidum pyramid as a true pyramid. The tomb of Nefermaat and Atet was built beside Sneferu’s pyramid at Meidum, and the painting of the Meidum Geese was found by an Italian artist called Luigi Vassalli who took the painting from the tomb and gave it to the Egyptian Museum.

Ampim has carefully documented that the statues of Prince Ra-Hotep and his wife Nofret in the Cairo Museum are not authentic ancient Egyptian statues, but were in fact created in the 19th century by the hands of modern conspirators.

Nofret married Prince Rahotep, a son of Pharaoh Sneferu
The painting of the Meidum Geese was found in 1871 in the tomb-chapel of Atet, or Itet, the wife of Prince Nefermaat, who was the son of the 4th Dynasty pharaoh Sneferu. The latter is believed to have ruled Egypt for 54 years and built four pyramids at Sila-Meidum and two in the Dahshur Necropolis.

Major ancient Egyptian artworks were discovered at the same time, including the beautiful statues of Rahotep and Nofret, as well as the Sheikh Al-Balad statue. If the painting were fake, its colours would be faded after almost 145 years, but this did not happen, which on the other hand proves that the Meidum geese is the work of Ancient Egypt. The fact is that major authorities like Grebaut, Schafer, Maspero, Rhone and Mariette all authenticated the painting.
