Female Offering Bearer

This semi-clad woman in a fringed coat and shawl must once have been part of a row of tomb figures bringing offerings for the deceased. She carries flowers draped over one arm and a pot in one hand. To judge from comparable reliefs whose dates and provenances are known, the tomb from which the relief came was a work of the fourth century B.C. in Lower Egypt.
