Statuette of a Woman
Whether the woman represented here had her own tomb or shard her husband's, her grace goods included this very fine statuette. The style of the figure, especialy the details of the face and wig, indicates that it was made during the reign of Amunhotep III. The base, on which the subject's name would have been written, has been lost.
