Breasted: 5. Berlin Museum, 9536 (Pl. 56b). Right arm at side, right hand held something. Left hand slightly in front and is open. The figure wears long coloured dress, elaborate collar, and long heavy headdress.
Provenance not stated. Height: 44 cm. Berlin, Ausf. Verzeichnis, 1899, p. 105.
Tooley-1989 (p. 194): Thebes. West Berlin 9536. H.44.5 cms. Female figure in walking pose with slender body and swelling thighs, high narrow waist and full bosom. It wears a red dress with 2 broad straps with a yellow and green scale design down the front. The long hair is parted in the centre and covers the ears. A heavy collar is also worn. The left arm is pendant but curves inwards, the right hand being pierced. It is difficult to envisage what was carried (Breasted 1948, 66, pl. 56b; Wenig 1969, 47 no.27a; Fay 1986, 57). The eyes are set at an angle with cosmetic line and inner canthi marked, and brows which are straight but curve at the outer edges suggest a late 11 to early 12 dyn. date (cf. p. 188. JE 49634, Mo'alla).
