E.62.4 A small limestone tablet with the image of a monkey holding its young. It is square in shape although this appears to because the adult monkey's head has been removed. There is a hole in the centre at the top of the artefact presumably so it could be hung up. The adult monkey is bending it's knees to reduce its height which also gives the idea of closeness between the two creatures. The underside of the artefact has the same image only in reverse and with less detail. There is red pigment remaining on both sides around the feet particularly. 2002.98.0241.jpg
