--δ-Θ-Φ-Ω-- Egypt, 2030-1802 BC. Wood, mud beads, linen string, paint. This paddle "doll" may have been an accoutrement of troops of singers and dancers who performed at religious ceremonies associated with the goddess Hathor. It would have been used as a percussion instrument, to appease the diety with its sound.
This statue depicts an Egyptian man that is wearing a Schenti (a wrapped skirt around the waist), a decorated apron, possible gold bracelets and armlets, a wesekh collar (a decorated, traditional rounded collar), sandals, no evident hair or makeup, and a uraeus headpiece (a headdress with a cobra). It can be assumed that this man is in the upper part of the Egyptian social status, possibly as a court official or a noble.
