A wooden Sokar hawk coated in gesso and painted yellow, green, red, and black. The body of the hawk is covered with a cross-hatch design to imitate a beaded net. There is a hole in the base of the hawk for attachment, likely to a Ptah-Osiris figure. An unidentified number (25/50) is written on the object in black ink. It is part of the Woking Collection, which arrived to the Egypt Centre on long-term loan from Woking College in 2012 (Engel 2020).
