Shabti of Djed–khonsu–iuef–ankh


Currently not on display


The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in shallow relief and painted black. A square–hatched basket is carried behind the left shoulder. The face is fairly simply modelled, with eyes with brows are added in black. There is a vertical column of black hieroglyphs on the front that read, “The Osiris, the Fourth Prophet of Amun, Djed–khonsu–iuef–ankh, justified”. Broken across the legs and mended.
