Description

A funerary figure seated with knees pulled up and shoulder length hair (note the painted ponytail extending from the wig) and skin painted yellow. A strip of linen is wrapped around the figure. The figure is similar to those found as part of scenes of weavers. Stylistically this figure dates to the Middle Kingdom at Beni Hasan.
