Shabti of Pa-user-amun


Currently not on display


Mummiform-shaped shabti mould made in pottery painted green with black painted details. Wearing a plain tripartite wig, with arms crossed left over right above the waist, and the hands holding a pair of hoes modelled in relief and painted black. A square–hatched trapezoidal basket with shoulder straps is painted on the back. The face is simply modelled, with the eyes and brows added in black. A vertical column of inscription painted in black on the front reads: “The illuminated one, the Osiris, the God’s Father of Amen, Pa–user–Amen, justified”. Broken at the knees with the lower part of the inscription now missing.
