There are 14 objects for which Decoration contains → evidence
14.9.119 Wreath around head. No evidence of painted decoration or metal attachments. She may have been smiling, although there is considerable erosion of the facial features. Ring-shaped decoration covers her ears.
14.9.22 Red clay with white slip on both sides and decorative red stripes, angled like very open chevrons, on outside. Inside, trace of red across on corner perhaps evidence of lost interior design. No finished edges so it is a middle piece.
2007.4.130 On one side, light red on the botom half and dark red on the other half. On the other side, a pale red background with evidence of a darker red pattern
2007.4.134 Very faded, but evidence of red paint on one side, painted in circles
2007.4.136 Very worn, but evidence of ridges on outer side
2007.4.153 Evidence of red paint on one side
2007.4.59 Evidence of black glaze, very worn
47.6.3 Dull brownish-black glaze all over. Ribbed handles with bearded masks instead of spurs, handles divided in two between mask and body. In handle zone, incised band of tendrils on straight stalk. White dots (v. worn) above and below. Round top of lower band some evidence of what was a wavy pattern. Lower band black as is base and the rest of the vessel.
51.4.5 Decoration in black and purplish-brown over a pale slip, with incised decoration on the back. At the top of the body is a broad band between two pairs of narrow bands. Above this is some evidence of a frieze of vertical bars. Below is a figural frieze, decorated at front with a geometricising bird flying profile to the right, holding a wavy line in his beak. He is surrounded by two crosses and two clusters of 8 dots (rudimentary rosettes) in the field. A floral decoration at the back is comprised of four interlocking palmettes, with purplish-brown petals and brownish-black hearts separated by incisions, with tendrils terminating in volutes emanating from either side of each sideways palmette. The lower part of the body is decorated with a thick black band between a pair of thin bands, above, and a thin band, below.
E.23.2 Funerary stele with vulture wings surrounding the solar disk, common during the time period. Below the wings is the text of the stele, surviving intact. Two men are depicted adoring the god Re-Horakhty, whose presence is indicated not only by the uraeus and sun disk but also his name inscribed in the text. It has been suggested that the dress of the figures indicates that they are Nubians; this is confirmed by the oddity of their personal names. The sky is depicted above the winged disk, each end being supported by the symbol of the west (on the left, only the top of the feather survives) and the east (on the right, more or less complete). A signature, possibly belonging to Flinders Petrie has been found above the head of the right hand figure. There is only one viable interpretation possible, when one combines the depictions with the details found within the text. The stele depicts the man Serep and his son Tkr-Irt-Hrw, not as has been assumed Serep with his Ka. A personal Ka has no need of the title m33 khrw, which is a title of the deceased, thus two deceased are depicted. There is no question that Serep is a man as he is depicted in male dress and has the male symbol after his name. There is enough evidence to show that the stele was once painted. Red pigment on the sun disk of the god is the most apparent, though a similar (if not the same) is found in several of the hieroglyphics and on the deceased as well as faint traces on the column to the right. A yellow stain remains in the first two columns, which could be remains of the paint used to fill in the columns. The combination of colours matches well with the red pigment found in the glyphs.
E.62.57 Shallow greywacke bowl in two pieces (evidence of further joins). Incomplete with middle section missing.
L.2011.1.22 Evidence of pearlescent blue glaze in the upper part, golden in the lower part; white sediments all over.
TEMP.2014.9.19 No decoration, no incised lines or stamps. Grey residue on the interior. Section missing from lip. Evidence of use of a pottery wheel in making.
TEMP.2014.9.20 Blackened base of interior. Two incised rings, one near foot and the other near the lip. interior and above top incised line is smooth. Lower exterior, textured/coarse, grit. Evidence of use of a pottery wheel in making.
