Description
Breasted -- 2. New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 26.2.10 (Pl. 1). 1 Sixth dynasty. Enough traces of the original paint remain to indicate that the body was once red, and the wig and base were black. The man's legs are much closer together than in the case of No. 1 above. He appears to wear a wig which covers his right ear. Much of the left half of the head is lacking. The arms are attached by wooden dowel pins.
