In the decorative repertoire of the graves, we found them climbing palms and fig trees to help collect the highest fruits. They also appear under the chair of their owners, often adorned with necklaces and bracelets. Since the Old Kingdom, the monkey had the affection of the man and had access to the house, where he lived with the dog and other pets.
