Description
Tooley p. 191-2: Pit 28 of Bw3w. JE 31349 (plate 38:1), JE 31350. Two pairs of female figures in walking pose wearing white dresses with one strap over the left shoulder. The hair is long and swept behind the shoulders revealing small ears. The modelling is very crude and the stature virtually steatopygous. On the heads of the front figures are round baskets of beer jars, on those behind, trapezoid baskets with overhanging lids, all supported by the left arms held straight. Small birds are held in the right hands (Naville 1896, 3-4; Winlock 1947, 43). The crude pointed faces have oversized eyes outlined in black with slightly curved brows. Dated 11 dyn. (p. 33).
