The model of a mirror consists of a handle in the form of a naked woman with a papyrus umbel supporting a reflective disk atop her head. The disk is made of polished bronze, and symbolizes the sun. Mirrors were used in the application of make-up and were often included among the funerary goods of the deceased.
