In King Sahure's burial temple were found reliefs showing the departure and return of a fleet and thanks to these reliefs the reconstruction of the model is possible. Sea going ships they were probablyused to transport wood and myrrh from Syria and Lebanon. Typical vessel used during the reign of King Sahure, this Egyptian ship carried cedar and ebony from Lebanon to Egypt. Shipbuilders of that era did not use pegs (treenails) but relied on rope to keep their ships afloat. Keel, frames and deck were tightly tied together. The model is made enchanting by the particular construction system
