Résumé : The art of manicure is very ancient as can be testified by the Egyptian tomb of Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep, dated approximately 2400 BC. It was discovered in the necropolis of Saqqarah in 1964. It is the tomb of two manicurist men who seem to have played an important role. Indeed, they were “Manicurist and Overseer of the Manicurists in the Palace, King’s Acquaintance and Royal Confidant” (King Niouserrê, 5th dynasty, ancient empire) (1).
