Description
Tooley pp. 11-12: One of the largest pre-MK groups of models was located in a floor niche in tomb A1 of ny-anx-ppy-km at Meir ... The servant models may be divided into 2 groups by their distinct workmanship, each group forming a set, evidently the work of 2 separate craftsmen. ...The first group is characterised by the fine carving of the heads, in particular the faces, cheek bones, brow bones, noses, well defined eyes, mouths and high quality finishing (CG 236 CG 240, CG 241, CG 243, CG 244, CG 245, CG 246, CG 248). ... the difference in quality is the result of different hands and not importance of particular activities. These models, entirely of wood, are predominantly single figures, occasionally pairs, rarely a group of 3. The activities depicted [include] ... stoking an oven (CG 238, CG 243, CG 247),
