Mummy Case Cover


Currently not on display


Wood cover from the foot end of a mummy case. Inner side decorated with a shen hieroglyph and outside with image of the deceased on the back of a bull. On the top edge is a patch of surviving decoration (painted plaster) with red and yellow bands against a pale cream/yellow. Found in the collections in 1978. Assumed to be part of EES exavated material form Saqqara (1969) but it's not in the list finds donated to the museum. Because of the orientation of the bull it cannot be a match for the missing coffin board (M14000a) from the mummy case of Ankh-es-en-aset (M14000). CONDITION NOTE 1998: Fragment only, loss of pigment, some cracking , surface loss, discolouration, surface dirt, some loose areas.
