Information

Roughly round in profile, sewn at the edges, now rather flattened. Skin has split in places revealing the stuffing of chaff or straw. Difficult to date because there is no information about the provenance. However, compare with a Middle Kingdom example in William Matthew Flinders Petrie, 'Kahun, Gurob and Hawara', (London, 1890) p.28.
