About this object

Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of hoes added in black. A large rectangular basket with a square–hatched detail and shoulder straps is painted on the back. The face is poorly defined. A vertical column of inscription on the front of the figure names the owner as Pa–hem–neter, although this is very indistinct.

Inscription is recorded by Newberry on the record card.
