Description
MFA website: This wooden tomb model depicts a procession of three male figures, possibly either offering bearers and/or priests. They wear long, white kilts and have closely cropped hair styles painted black. Their eyes have been detailed in black and white. There are slight traces of reddish-brown to suggest their skin may have been painted this color. The arms have been carved as separate components from the bodies and are attached at the shoulders with small pegs. They standing on a roughly rectangular wooden board. The 'feet' of the figures are carved as pegs for insertion into the base. The absence of additional holes in the base suggest there were no additional figures in the procession.
