Fragmentary male statue


Fragmentary male statue

The man represented wears a smooth wig of medium length that leaves large and protruding ears free. The wig framing the regular shape face is made with realism and is characterised by big eyes, the outline of which is underlined by a line in relief. The man wore a long skirt, of which the top part is preserved tied with two bows just below the chest, clothing in use from the end of the XII Dynasty.
