Description
Breasted: 15. Cairo Museum, JE 46725 (Pl. 58b, left). This is one of the finest of this type of servant statue. With her left hand the woman steadies on her head a rectangular basket containing sealed wine jars. Her right hand, which is at her side, grasps a live duck by the wings. Her tight-fitting dress, ornamented with a simple series of horizontal zig-zag lines is supported by two broad straps, one over each shoulder. She wears wristlets and anklets, as well as a large necklace which is more like a collar.
