About this object

Lower part of an inscribed wooden shabti. Ten rows of incised hieroglyphic inscription. The surface is broken away at the back and covered with white gesso (?). Missing from above the waist and the front of the feet are broken off. A carved hole down the centre suggests that the now missing upper part was pegged in place.
