Description
MFA website: This wooden tomb model decpicts a procession. Ten male figures march in a double file on a baseboard. They carry cylindrical objects that may be quivers made of animal skins, suggesting a military procession. The figures are painted reddish-brown. They wear white kilts and black wigs, and their eyes are detailed in black and white. The 'feet' of the figures are carved as pegs for insertion and plastering into holes in the base. Five remain attached to the base, while the rest have separated. Arms are separate components from the bodies, articulated at the shoulders via small pegs. Though some are still attached to their original figures, several have come apart. Many fragments have broken or chipped away from the components of the model. In general, it is in battered condition.
