Shabti of Pa-hem-neter


Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The headband is boldly painted. The arms are crossed above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of hoes added in black. A large diamond–hatched trapezoidal basket with loops in the uppermost corners is painted on the back. The face is poorly defined. A vertical column of inscription on the front of the figure names the owner as Pa–hem–neter.
