and it is a finely curved comb

which is among a number of knife handles and combs produced towards the end of prehistory of Egypt. The curving is three dimensional and it is curved out of ivory. The curving is light brown and it was created by curving figures of animals on both sides in horizontal roles. This spatial organization can be associated with the later art of most Egyptian artists. The artist uses curving and figures of animals to produce an art work that is rough in texture. The figures are well balanced because the figures are curved horizontally (Heilbrunn timeline of art history).
