Shabti of Nes-ankh-ef-en-maat


Green faience mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in shallow relief and painted black. The face is simply modelled with large eyes with brows added in black. A square–hatched basket on the back has no shoulder straps. A vertical column of hieroglyphs on the front reads, “The Osiris, the Priest of Amen, Nes–ankh–ef–(en)–maat, justified”. Broken across the legs and mended (2017); feet are broken off.
