Alabaster is one of the most precious materials of Ancient Egypt, used for funerary furnishings and the most complex rites of mummification. This type of container was used to contain the ointments typical of mummification. Its stylization and design make it one of the most stylized ointments preserved from Egyptian antiquity.
