Shabti of Iset-em-khebit



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig painted black. The lower part of the rear lappet is unpainted. The arms are crossed left over right above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of hoes that are added in black. There are traces of a basket being painted on the back of the shabti. The face is poorly defined. Black paint is used to show the eyes that are disproportionately large. The front of the figure has a vertical column of inscription added in black that 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?]". Ex collection of Sir J. Currie donated by D. H. Hanbury in 1941.
