About this object

Blue glaze faience mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with fairly short front lappets, with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in relief. The face has eyes with brows added in black. A large diamond–hatched rectangular basket with shoulder straps is painted quite low on the back. A vertical column of hieroglyphs on the front reads, "The Osiris, Yi–hetep–em–Mut, justified". The shabti is recorded as coming from the Ramesseum at Thebes. Although the name of the owner is not listed by Quibell, a shabti for Yi–hetep–em–Mut is illustrated in his excavation account.
