Metal figure

Female figure, legs together, arms hanging with outstretched fingers at some distance from the sides, the probably naked figure extremely slender, especially between breasts and hips. Features now appear coarse, hair parted in the middle, with two front hanging tresses and the main body of hair behind. Very much eroded, with loss of surface details. Perhaps copper?

date: First Intermediate Period - Middle Kingdom
