Clay Ball



Clay ball with multiple seal impressions which are poorly preserved - possibly a standing human figure. Excavation archives say the seals are "three nefer signs between wedjat eyes". Find number 29/243: Found in House U.36.17 within the North Suburb at Tell el Amarna (excavation find number 29/243). Like many others found in the excavations of homes at Tell el-Amarna this clay ball may contain human hair. Small balls of clay containing human hair were probably used in magical practices.
