Description This carved mummiform figure has long hair striped with yellow. Its arms are folded on its breast and it has painted necklaces. There is an inscription on the front filled with yellow paint. There is no title or name on this piece, and it is either a stock figure not used, or, more likely, a forgery as the parts of the formula are mixed up and the hieroglyphics are incorrect. The modelling also indicates that this piece is likely a forgery.
Provenance Dikran Kelekian, New York and Paris [date and mode of acquistion unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1923, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
