Shabti of Sety I



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig rudimentarily carved. The face is fairly round in shape. The eyes are small and poorly defined. The ears are simply defined. The arms are crossed right over left above the waist but lacking definition. The body is quite broad and the buttocks are gently defined. Areas of varnish remain especially on the front while the sides and back have areas where the varnish layer has worn away. The shabti is uninscribed. Carved from juniper wood and coated with black resin. CONDITION NOTE (1998): Very worn, surface loss, some crystallizing of bitumen and flaking off, surface dirt.
