Shabti of An–rekhyt



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig and divine beard. The arms are crossed above the waist, and the hands emerge from a shroud to hold a pick in the left, and a hoe in the right. A basket is carried behind the left shoulder. The implements and basket are very poorly defined. The face is crudely worked with no attention to detail. The shabti is supported by a dorsal pillar that has a horizontal notch defining the bottom of the rear lappet of the wig, and stands upon a trapezoidal base. A vertical column of inscription on the front of the figure names the owner as An–rekhyt. The name is without the usual epithet ‘The Osiris.’ Transliteration and translation of the inscription: an-rxyt, "An–rekhyt".
