Figurine of a seated man

This is a wooden model of a man sitting on a stool. Originally he had arms, which have not survived but the remains of the attaching peg remains on one side. Although very worn it is covered in brightly coloured paint depicting the man’s hair, skin and clothing and the seat is decorated with yellow. In ancient Egypt it was common to place human figurines with burials to act as servants in the after life, and it is very likely this was the purpose of this little model.
