Egyptian head of a man with the nappy hairdo of Nubian tribespeople.
The man shows beautiful almond-shaped eyes with neatly marked lids. The arched eyebrows span the entire forehead.
The nose is gone, the lips are pressed to a gentle smile.
Elaborate style with much use of the modeling tool. Back side left raw.
