Comb

49.47.1001

On display

Small ivory comb, broken in two and mended, with very little of the teeth remaining. One side is carved with the representation of a standing figure making an offering to a seated figure in a shrine. On the other there seems to be faint trace of a bird - perhaps a stork or other wading bird? Marked by the excavator with the grave number 120 K'06. Marked in black with John Gartang's collection number GN 301.
