The temple mural (1892 BCE) at Beni Hasan, Middle Egypt, depicts Asiatic herdsmen with three children coming to trade with a local Egyptian ruler. They are recognisable by their dress, pulled back hair, and short pointed beards. In addition to the humans, the mural portrays donkeys, weapons, goods, and tools. The designs on the women’s clothing is suggestive of designs used by Palestinian women today.
