Description
Breasted -- 1. London, British Museum, 52948. Twelfth dynasty. Three men, each with left leg forward, walk one behind the other: no feet are indicated, as if they were walking in mud. The left arm in each case is at the side, and the hand has been bored in order to hold some object. In each instance the right arm is bent at slightly more than a right angle, and the hand holds what appears to be a beater of some sort. Each beater is yellow with brown lines of cross-hatching. The men wear short black headdresses and white skirts. Their skin is deep red. Each figure has a yellow ring painted on the top of the head.
