This alabaster boat stands on a base representing a square pool.

In the center of the boat is a cabin in the form of a box with an awning. The supporting columns have double capitals of lotus and papyrus. The prow and stern of the boat end in goat heads with real horns.

A naked princess squats in the prow holding a lotus flower; in the stern stands a female dwarf holding a pole to test the depth of the water.

Dimensions:  Height 37 cm  Length 60 cm
