Scribe Nakhtsebek

This small statuette portrays a priest by the name of Nakhtsebek, in the attitude of a scribe, a figure that was always in favour during all the periods of Pharaonic Egypt.

He is seated on a small base, the left leg raised in front of him, the right one folded on the ground. His left hand is placed flat on his knee while his clenched right hand probably once held a reed pen.

A papyrus is unrolled on his short pagne. It has an engraved inscription of his name and title, identifying him as the son of Imy.
He is wearing the kind of curly wig that was very popular during the 18th dynasty.

It is composed of a cap of thick locks of hair, arranged in layers and parted into two wavy bunches on each side of the face. In addition to the inscriptions on the papyrus, formulas for offerings are engraved around the base.

The base of this item has changed in fall 2018, the picture shows the new model, but it remains exceptionally possible that older versions are included in your order
