Shabti of Sety I



Mummiform shabti wearing a fairly well carved plain tripartite wig. The face is fairly round in shape; the eyes are poorly defined. The nose is broad and rubbed. The ears are very simply defined. The arms are crossed right over left above the waist. The body is quite broad and the buttocks are gently defined. Only a few traces of varnish remain, mostly across the chest, and around the outer extremities of the wig. The shabti is inscribed with the throne name of the pharaoh Sety I, Menmmatra, within a cartouche and the 6th Chapter of the Book of the Dead. Carved from wood with remains of resin coating. One of fifteen wooden shabtis of Sety I in World Museum's collection.
