3275, Wood carving of Egyptian labourers, unknown

Artist: Photographer: Ardon Bar Hama
Culture: Egyptian
Material: Wood

Egyptian wood carving of three labourers, a plough, two oxen and  yoke.  Little is known about this object, though Freud collected a small number of similar Egyptian labourer statues in the same style.  Freud's habit of collecting a huge number of antiquities with little or no documentation to accompany them means that there are a large number of objects with no information attached to them.
