Middle Kingdom

Not on view

This clapper is shaped like an arm and a hand. The fingers and a broad bracelet are indicated by incised lines. Additional roundel ornaments decorate the arm and hand; they are typical of Middle Kingdom clappers, but their significance is unclear. The clapper was found together with at least thirteen more; for more information see 22.1.143a, b.
