Statuette of Temple Boy

16.5.72.16
A headless statuette of the type known as the temple boy. The boy is seated in an oblong plinth with his right leg crossed at the front, his left arm to the side of the leg, wearing a bracelet and holding a round object with a loop whole in the middle of it. The right leg is bent and is in a right angle to the body with the right hand resing on it. The boy is wearing a long cloak with sleeves but most of the details of the pleats have eroded. The cloak is raised to expose the boy's genitals. On his chest a single a chain of rectangular and pyramid amulets can just about be discerned. The back of the statuette is very flat and it is generally in a poor condition.
