Ancient Egyptian limestone Amimpyptahenhau funerary figure, Old Kingdom, 6th Dynasty (2323-2150 BC) Male figure in a hieratic position, with his arms stretched out along his sides and his hands closed with his thumbs extended as a symbol of respect for the gods from the beyond. The dress (he only wears the straight-cut, plain skirt) and the wig (short) indicate that we are dealing with a character of a certain social rank, probably medium, since he lacks jewellery and profuse decoration. His identity is indicated by a hieroglyphic inscription that is engraved in a single vertical register on his right arm. Measurements: 17 x 8 cm
Conditions: Fragmented legs and missing paint.
Provenance: Classical Archaeology F. Cervera, Spain, 2014
