Currently not on display


Sculptor's trial piece in limestone with profile of a head facing left. This may possibly represent a pharaoh wearing a crown. Marked with the find number 439 indicating it was excavated in the east room of the rooms flanking the Central Halls of the Great Palace at Tell el-Amarna during the 1935-6 excavations of the Egypt Exploration Society, along with many other sculptor's trial pieces in limestone now kept in museums worldwide.
