Wooden funerary figure
This wooden funerary figure is likely an offering bearer, as it has a dowel hole in the head, likely for the attachment of a basket of offerings. The figure is likely female as she wears a long tripartite wig, and stands with both legs together rather than striding. She is likely from Beni Hasan.
