Shabti of Nes–pa–per–en–nub



Fragment from a mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black that is only just discernable. The face is modelled with trace of the eyes with brows are added in black. The arms are crossed above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of hoes added in black that are only just discernable. A diamond–hatched basket with shoulder straps is painted on the back that is only just discernable. The lower legs and feet are missing. Although the column of hieroglyphic inscription on the front of the shabti is now hardly discernable, it is evident when comparing the iconography with other examples that this is from a shabti for Nes–pa–per–en–nub. CONDITION NOTE 1998: Incomplete, pitted, surface dirt, worn, chipped.
