Wooden figure from a funerary model
A kneeling wooden funerary figure. This position suggests that the figure is from a kitchen scene, or more likely a sailor from a model boat. The arms are carved and attached, although the join is concealed by a layer of paint and gesso. Note, the eyes are disproportionate to the face and may have been repainted in modern times. It is very similar to other wooden figures from the First Intermediate Period from Sedment.
