Head from a Statue of a Man
- Art Funded
- 19 cm
In the case of this head, the wig is identical to those on statues of the 5th and 6th Dynasties. The facial features, however, are more naturalistic and probably more of a true likeness of its owner.
Found in 1897 in an excavation at the temple of Mut in Karnak by Miss Margaret Benson and Miss Janet Gourlay; by descent to the vendor.
