About this object

Left hand side of a wooden round-topped stela belonging to the Scribe of the Lord of the Two Lands, Pashedu [pA-Sd]. In the upper part is one of a pair of wedjat eyes, under which is Anubis lying upon a shrine, with a flagellum. Beneath this is the figure of Pashedu standing before an offering table, making an offering to a deity (now missing). Pashedu wears a mid-length linen kilt with a robe over, and a short wig. Above him are four vertical columns of hieroglyphic text. The low relief carving is of a very fine standard and traces of colour are still evident in the piece.
