Carved wooden figural sculpture of an Egyptian bust, decorated with pigment and gold leaf. This wooden bust is rendered in the Amarna style. Mounted on a wooden stand. This piece is stylistically similar to that of the carved wooden head of a harpist that was in the collection at the Louvre, which was acquired in Cairo in 1932. In 1986, the head of the harpist was determined to be a forgery. The wood was determined to be of a type native to India and Southeast Asia and a carbon-14 dating test determined that the wood was not ancient. (With Stand) Height: 11 in x width: 5 3/8 in x depth: 4 3/4 in.
