Catalogue Description:
One drawing of the god Thoth, executed in carbon ink on linen. Between his hands he holds the wadjet. He strides to the right wearing a simple pleated kilt and stripped tripartite wig. This piece probably once formed part of a mummy shroud. Condition: Several losses are noticed. The most prominent is in the lower right hand corner. One hole through the body exists as well as a fairly large gap directly in front of Thoth and about waist high.
