The famous painting of the Meidum geese was part of a scene of net-hunting birds painted in stucco on the mastaba of Nefermaat and his wife Atet. Nefermaat was the son and chaty of Seneferu, the first pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty (rulers circa 2614-2589 BC). The mastaba was discovered by Auguste Mariette in 1871 and studied by Petrie. The frieze of geese was found in the chapel of Atet.
