The ancient Egyptians had a really interesting religion and this piece celebrates just one aspect of this religion. Many Egyptians believed that when a relative or ruler died, they could still come back to help guide the living so in many temples, burial chambers and such places, false doors were carved into the temple or chamber. This door didn't open like a real door but it was a place where you could go and bring food and offerings to help "feed" the deceased and ask a question to a problem you might have such as creating a baby, money problems, many of the same types of problems we experience today. This painting pays homage to this belief and features beautifully hand painted hieroglyphics; the pink granite at the bottom would be where the offerings would be placed.
