Shabti of Amenemipet



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig painted black which is rather faded. The arms are folded above the waist. The hands presumably carry implements but these are hard to distinguish. A square–hatched basket is faintly evident on the back. There are very faint traces of a wesekh–collar being painted on the chest. The face is simply defined. The shabtis has four horizontal bands of a painted inscription running around the body, with a vertical column on the front. The inscriptions are crudely painted, and difficult to clearly decipher. The owner is named as Amenemipet and there is only one other known example, also in World Museum, no. 56.21.544.
