Figurine of a dignitary
This stuccoed and painted wooden figurine was probably part of a group of persons involved in a scene of everyday life. Represented in a walking attitude, the dignitary holds a baton in the left hand. The right hand without doubt gripped a sekhem-sceptre. The piece, which is distinguished by a quite heavy manufacture, resembles the pieces coming from the provincial necropoleis from the 1st Intermediate Period of from the beginning of the Middle Kingdom.
