This beautiful head wears a large wig that leaves the ears uncovered and bears on the forehead the erect cobra "uraeus" decoration.
The back part of the head has been mutilated; however, the well-conserved face with its soft modelling and well-drawn features is of great elegance.
Based on the style, it may be attributed to reign of Tutankhamun.
