Said to come from Mo'alla. JE 49634. H.65 cms (plate 34: 1). Female figure in walking pose, stout stature, short legs, wearing a white dress with single strap over the right shoulder. The hair is long and straight covering the ears. On the head is a trapezoid basket in one piece with the head and body. It is supported by the left arm sharply bent at the elbow. The pendant right hand is pierced, the bird missing. Traces of paint on the feet indicate the presence of sandals. The fleshy face has a narrow mouth and nose, with deep nostrils. The eyes are set straight in the face, the inner canthi marked and small fishtail cosmetic lines. The brows are straight but curve at the outer edges.
The style of the eyes has parallels with late 11 dyn. to Senwosret I sculpture (Evers 1929a, pls.2, 29, 33, 45; 1929b, nos. 58; Winlock 1955, pl. 30; Bourriau 1988, 18 no.a; 20 no.9).
