Shabti of Iset-em-khebit


Currently not on display


Mummiform shabti made of light green 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 of the shabti is simply defined. The inscription on this shabti has worn away completely. Broken and repaired.
