Ancient Egypt, Old Kingdom wooden figure of a man, 6th Dynasty, 2345-2190 BC
Depicting a male figure standing frontally, with his left leg forward in a marching pose, wearing the typical Egyptian knee-length kilt. The left arm is flexed with the hand clenched into a fist, as if he were carrying some kind of instrument, like a sceptre that has now been lost. The same is true of the other arm, although it is stretched out close to the body. In the representation of the face, the typical short Egyptian wig stands out.
