figurines

Fragment of a solid terracotta figurine, only the head survives. The subject is male and is bearded and wears a stylised and uneven hairstyle or cap. The eyebrows are modelled but the eyes are bulges and not properly defined. The nose is large and straight and the mouth is shown by a slice across the clay. Nile silt clay.
