Shabti of Ankh–es–en–pa–re



Mummiform shabti wearing a tripartite wig showing traces of black paint, and with striations being indicated in the modelling on the front lappets. The arms are crossed above the waist. The inscription that would have originally been painted on the front of the figure has completely faded. The owner is named as Ankh–es–en–pa–Re. Transliteration and translation of the inscription: Wsir anx.s-n-pA-Ra mAa.t-xrw, “The Osiris, Ankh–es–en–pa–Re, justified”. The Gilstrap collection was formed by Miss Gilstrap, who contributed funds to the British School of Archaeology in Egypt between 1900 and 1910. She was given a share of the excavated finds in return for the funding she provided.
