Price : $ 700
EUR 645.40 GBP 552.37 AUD 1,073.94
|

shown mummiform with details in black pigment, weaing a tripartite wig, the crossed arms with clenched hands each holding agricultural tools for work in the afterlife, an vertical column of text at the front reads: 

"The Osiris Imintet, true of voice."

Condition: Rejoined at the neck and glued to the base so difficult to determine if the feet are missing, therefore priced on the assumption the piece is incomplete, good original deposits; translation on the wood base together with old catalogue numbers.  Custom mounted.

Dimensions: Height: 10.16cm (4in).

Provenance: Dr. Benson Harer private collection, acquired at auction in 1991 after deaccession from a Maryland museum.
