Catalogue Description:
Painted wooden stela inscribed for a woman named Nesi-khonsu-pa-khered. The owner is shown being ushered by Thoth into the presence of Re-Horakhty. Condition: Glued together from two halves. Paint missing here and there, especially in the areas along the line of the mend. The figures were built up slightly in blue frit, and some of these areas seem never to have received a final coat of paint.
