Catalogue Description:
Grey-green schist block statue of Min. His cloak entirely envelopes the body, only the hands emerging from the sleeves of the garment. The contours of the body are subtly visible under the garment. Arms are crossed, right over left, the right clutching a handkerchief just visible by the thumb. The wide, striated wig falls to the shoulders, pushing his large ears forward. The eyes are rounded with lightly hooded upper lids. The eyebrows and cosmetic line are incised in low, delicate relief. He sits on a stela-shaped base. A single column of inscription runs down the front, and one continuous line around the base. Condition: Excellent overall, the nose slightly damaged. The left, front section of the base is broken off, rendering one-half of the line of inscription unreadable.
