Shabti of Iset–(em)–khebit


Currently not on display


Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig and a plaited divine beard. The arms are crossed on the chest, and the hands emerge from a shroud to hold a pick in the left, and a hoe in the right. The hands are placed widely apart. A basket is carried behind the left shoulder. The face is simply worked. The shabti stands against a dorsal pillar, and upon a trapezoidal base. A horizontal notch in the dorsal pillar denotes the lower edge of the rear lappet of the wig. The front of the ushabti has a vertical column of inscription naming the owner as Iset–em–Khebit. Height is taken from the top of the base so the measurement will be slightly short.
