Mummy cat

Mummy cat

The mummy shows a cone-shape decorated with overlapping spiral bandages tapering upwards: the insertion of a band of dark colour creates a decorative chess. At the bottom, where the decorative bandage was rolled down one can see the bandage containing the base and the wire that secured the ornamental bandage.
