[in another model] lay two figures which evidently did not belong to it, two girls on a single base carrying baskets on their heads
Tooley pp. 222-3 : Tomb 2757. JE 46773 (plate 58:3). Dimensions unknown. A pair of female figures in walking pose side-by-side. They wear white dresses 222 dth short sleeves, the straps passing under the breasts. The long hair is parted in the centre and reveals the ears. The figures also wear white bracelets and red anklets. The skin tone is a curious dark green. The modelling of the bodies shows the swell of the thighs, the navel depression and groove to between the full bosoms. On the head of the left hand figure is a trapezoid basket supported by the left arm curving to clasp it at the front. In the right hand is a bird. The right hand figure carries a round basket with beer jars supported by the straight left arm. In the right hand is a blossom. The faces resemble the above figures (Quibell 1927, 13). Date as above.
