This striking piece of Egyptian art comes from the collection of Pasha Sayyid Khashaba and is believed to be from the Middle Kingdom cemetery at Meir, Upper Egypt on the West Bank of the Nile. Sayyid Khashaba, a wealthy merchant, was granted the excavation concession to this site by the Egyptian government in 1910. Sometime prior to 1977 the heirs of the Pasha sold it to the Swiss collector, Mr A Thommen in whose collection it remained until recently.
