From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

A flail was used for threshing to separate grains from their husks. The flail is depicted alongside the crook as symbols of office for the Egyptian Pharaoh. The flail symbolises the Pharaoh's role as provider of food for his people and the crook symbolises his role as the shepherd of his people. Both crook and flail also serve to link the Pharaoh with Osiris. Depictions of Anubis, the jackal-headed god of the embalming, also include the flail as attribute.

This type of object has long been often identified as an "eye idol" and compared with the thousands of abstract stone idols found in the "eye temple" at Tell Brak, Syria. More recently scholars have concluded this type of "eye idol" is probably not an idol at all. It is a tool used for twisting strands together to make twine.
