About this object

Standing male figure with shaven head and wearing a kilt. There are pegs at the feet for fitting into a pedestal. The arms and part of the feet are lost. Traces of colour in places. It is unclear if this was a servant figure, placed in a burial with other funerary models, or if this is a representation of a specific individual, i.e., the tomb owner.
