I'm surprised that this image of the palace facade sarcophagus hasn't inspired any debate as to why there was such a departure from the pure aesthetic of the Great Pyramid coffer to a foreign style unless the dearly departed was perhaps from that culture.
This may tie in with the reversion to the mastaba after perfecting the pyramid as evidenced in the Big Two. The Pyramid of Menkaure somehow seems not to fit the pattern. Maybe Shepsekaf who had his finger in a couple of pies wasn't who he was said to be.
