Shabti of Sety I



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig rudimentarily carved. The face is fairly round in shape. The eyes are poorly defined. The nose is simply defined. The ears are quite large but simply defined. The arms are crossed right over left above the waist. The body is fairly broad, the buttocks defined. Feet are missing. Much varnish remains, especially on the face, shoulders and chest; the outside of the left arm, and the rear lappet of the wig are the largest areas where the varnish has worn away. The shabti is uninscribed, carved from juniper wood and coated with black resin. Possible remains of a painted hieroglyphic inscription on the surface. CONDITION NOTE (1998): Incomplete, feet missing, surface loss, flaking surface, surface dirt.
