Description

A rowing figure from a model boat. Although the figure is unprovenanced, the position of the figure strongly suggests a rower. The dowel hole in the seat would attach the figure to the model. Similar figures are found at Beni Hasan, and date from the late First Intermediate Period to the early Middle Kingdom.
