Nebre was an artist, his official designation 'Outline Scribe'. He was responsible for providing the drawings for reliefs or the hand-drawn hieroglyphs for inscriptions. He would have been crucial in determining the design and proportions of the finished work. When his task was completed the craftsman who carried out the actual carving of the relief or inscription would cut it out, and a third practitioner would apply the paint.
