Fragment of a relief, lower part of a female.The royal woman wears a sheer pleated linen gown. Traces of a base or a platform under her feet indicate that the figure may have been a statue in a shrine. The curved lines are characteristic of the more naturalistic style artists used during the later parts of the Amarna period.
Purchased from William Flinders Petrie, 1893
