Detail showing uraeus...
(From info card)|
"This typical representation of a royal woman shows the usual uraeus serpent at her brow. The square shape of the face and the voluminous hairstyle place the piece in the middle of Dynasty 12. Just enough is preserved of the proper right arm to show that it was bent: the royal woman was originally represented seated."
