WEAVING AND SPINNING WORKSHOP (MODEL)

WEAVING AND SPINNING WORKSHOP (MODEL)
A crudely made wooden model depicting weaving. One woman stands spinning thread which she holds in her hand while the spindle revolves. Two other women are using a horizontal loom which has been painted onto the base of the model. This was placed in the tomb to ensure an unlimited supply of linen in the Afterlife.
