Information

The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in shallow relief and painted black. A square–hatched basket is carried behind the left shoulder. The face is fairly simply modelled, with eyes with brows are added in black. There is a vertical column of black hieroglyphs on the front that read, “The Osiris, the Fourth Prophet of Amun, Djed–khonsu–iuef–ankh, justified”. The glaze is now worn away in most places, except for a few areas such as the darker colour hieroglyphs. Broken across the legs and mended together. This item was among the antiquarian objects and notebooks associated with the Reverend Bryan Faussett.
