Object Description

A fine Egyptian servant figurine carved from wood in a crouching position with his knees bent upwards from the Middle Kingdom period. Unfortunately, both arms are now missing, the figurine may have been preparing food or rowing a boat, typical stances that were believed to have aided the deceased in the afterlife. The figure retains an impressive amount of red pigment along with white colouring outlining the kilt, a black cropped wig and pigmentation detailing the eyes. A carved hole to the base with a tenon suggests the piece was an attachment to a larger model group.

Date: Circa 2000 – 1800 BC

Period: Middle Kingdom

Object Condition
