    Blind Harper in Tomb of Nakht

    From wiki:  During the Middle Kingdom (c. 2040–1640 BCE) blind harpists are depicted on tomb walls. The ancient Egyptians were not exclusively interested in the causes and cures for blindness but also the social care of the individual.”  Wiki source: The history of special education”, Margret A. Winzer”, p. 463, Gallaudet University Press, 1993, ISBN 1-56368-018-1

    … The Ancient Egyptians were the first civilisation to display an interest in the causes and cures for disabilities and during some periods blind people are recorded as representing a substantial portion of the poets and musicians in society.  Wiki source:  ”Everybody belongs”, Arthur H. Shapiro, p. 152, Routledge, 2000, ISBN 0-8153-3960-7
