This statue was found in the ruins of a mud brick building at Tanis, which was part of a cluster of structures not far from the enclosure wall of the Great Temple of Amun. This was probably a part of a workshop, for the beak was found in an adjacent room. It was probably in the workshop for repair, which was never completed.
