Modeled after several rock-cut tombs found at the Beni Hasan cemetery site in Middle Egypt, this tomb was constructed to show a style found during the Middle Kingdom (2066–1650 BCE). Beni Hasan was a popular burial site during the Middle Kingdom with Nomarchs—provincial administration officials. This area houses over thirty tombs, of which only a few are open to the public. This composite replica contains many images from the tomb of Khnumhotep II, a nomarch of the 12th Dynasty.
