public_access_description
This linen fragment was found at the funerary temple of King Neb-hâpet-Râ Mentu-hetep at Deir-el-bahn during excavations in 1906-07 . The linen has been interwoven with three double rows of small turquoise blue glazed beads. There are the remains of a fringe composed of the same turquoise beads alternating with squares of plaited straw. The fragment may originally have been part of a shawl but it is difficult to be certain as the ancient Egyptians seem to have favoured beads as decoration on various things.
