Catalogue Description:
Limestone statue of Djehuti represented as a scribe, seated with his legs folded under him. Djehuti wears a short kilt and the equipment of a scribe, which is represented in relief as if it were slung over his shoulder. Incised lines indicate the folds of skin on his abdomen. On his lap he holds a partially unrolled papyrus with plain incised and modified sunk relief hieroglyphs. The plinth on which he sits is rounded. Hieroglyphs appear on the top front of the plinth and on the front of the plinth. The hieroglyphs on the front are more crudely done than those on the rest of the figure. Condition: Chipped and scratched; inscription partially preserved.
