Figure of Girl
A carved wooden model of a serving girl who is carrying a chest on her head and a pair of geese in her hand. The linen robe disintegrated in transit and was restored. Servants carrying offerings were an important part of the equipment placed in the tomb and many were depicted walking in procession on the wall relief scenes, sometimes individual figures such as this were also found along with other wooden models depicting everyday life.
