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, mostly hidden beneath varnish. The nose and ears are simply defined but mostly hidden beneath varnish. The arms are crossed right over left above the waist but lack definition. The body is fairly broad and the buttocks faintly defined. Areas of varnish remain, notably on the wig, shoulders, chest, and feet; the ront of the body has smaller patches; the back has larger patches remaining. The shabti is uninscribed, carved from juniper wood and coated with black resin. CONDITION NOTE (1998): Surface loss, friable and flaking bitumen, surface crazed, surface dirt.
