Shabti of Iset-em-khebit



Mummiform shabti made of green glazed faience, wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed left over right above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of hoes that are modelled in relief and painted black. A diamond–hatched rectangular basket, suspended from two carrying straps, is painted in black on the back of the shabti. The face on the shabti is simply defined. A vertical column of painted inscription on the front names the owner as Iset–em–Khebit. Transliteration and translation of the inscription: Wsir As.t-m-Ax-bi.t mAa.t-xrw, "The Osiris, Iset–em–Khebit, justified". CONDITION NOTE 1998: Incomplete, surface dirt, worn.
