Description

This is one of five squatting figures from funerary models. These figures were likely involved in food production, and are similar to more complete models of preparing food. There are a number of arms which could belong to this figure, but it is impossible to match them with any degree of certainty. This figure is the largest in the Egypt Centre collection, and has the right arm carved from the same piece of wood, rather than being attached with a dowel.
