Catalogue Description:
Kneeling statue of a scribe who raised his hands in worship. Wig is of the MK type but without striations. Overall archaic appearance due to the shape of the eyes, square beard, and stone fill-ins between the upper arms and the raised hands. Sety's garment ends below the knees and is covered in deeply cut inscriptions. Another line of inscription on the base is mostly lost. Condition: Left arm is missing from the level of the elbow. The nose is chipped and the right eye and brow are damaged. The left corner of the base is missing in the front and the right front corner is chipped. The right front chip has carried away part of the inscription. The back pillar is chipped in numerous spots. The paint layer is sound, the skin being a nice reddish brown. The hieroglyphs still retain their red paint. Discoloration is found on the left side of the skirt.
