"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Small alabaster head of a King. The eyes, nose, mouth and parts of the headdress were outlined in black paint of which extensive traces remain. The piece is of poor workmanship showing little modeling. It is probably a fragment of an ushabti figure.
Condition: Only the face and some parts of the headdress remain, and surface is somewhat weathered.
