English: Scene from the mastaba (tomb) of Princess Idut, daughter of Pharaoh Unas from the Fifth dynasty. The scene shows a female hippopotamus giving birth while a crocodile prepares itself to eat the terrified baby hippo by opening its jaws. The scene is intended to illustrate the wedded symbolism of birth and death. See this map for the mastaba's location in the sector of the Pyramid of Unas, and this map for its location within the broader North Saqqara necropolis.
