About this object

Mummiform shabti of pale green glazed faience, wearing a plain tripartite wig and a divine beard. The arms are crossed on the chest, and the hands protrude from a shroud to hold a pick in the left and a hoe in the right. The right hand also holds the cord of a basket that is carried behind the left shoulder. The body is incised with a ‘T’-shaped inscription. This shabti and number 49.8.35 are inscribed for the same owner.
