Description
Tooley (p189): Gebelein. Tomb of Hnwy, chamber 5. West Berlin 13742. H.38.5 cms (plate 34: 3). Female figure with feet together, entirely naked. The figure lacks modelling to the body, which is elongated with short legs. The skin is coloured yellow and bodily details such as the nipples, navel and pubis are black. The figure wears black line bracelets and anklets. The head is little more than a knob of wood, pointed at the front to indicate the curve of the face and with short full bottomed hair. On the head is a trapezoid basket steadied by the left arm bent at the elbow, the hand closing over the top of it. The pendant right hand holds the wings of a black and white striped bird.
