Standing Figure of A Priest
The striding male figure is found in all periods of Egyptian art. This uninscribed example was either an object made for the tomb or a votive offering meant to be left in a temple as a token expressing thanks to the resident deity or seeking his favor. The shaven head suggests that the figure represents a priest.
