Fragment of a head, painted and gilt. Recorded as Middle Kingdom by Newberry but this could be wrong - more likely to be from the Late Period. Cracks to the scull and along the face, covering the right eye. Marked with "Triangle 11". Originally recorded as "Trial piece from a sculptors workshop". From the pit tomb near Shuneh. CONDITION NOTE 1998: Splitting, discolouration, surface dirt.
