ragment of mummy cartonnage

This fragment of mummy cartonnage, which dates from the New Kingdom, depicts a goddess adorned with a sun disk. Her arms, which have wings, are raised in the gesture of protection. The identity of the goddess is unknown; her name, which should have appeared between the two lines in front of her face, was never filled in. The piece was once in the Lambruschini collection.
