Shabti of Tent-hor


Currently not on display


Pottery with details added in black (now faded). Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with some traces of black paint. The arms are crossed on the chest but any details of implements or a basket are not discernable. The face is crudely–modelled, the only noticeable features being shallow depressions for the eyes. The shabti has a flat back. Although without a clearly legible inscription two shabtis for the same owner in the collection [nos. 1967.195.3 and 1967.195.4] are recorded as being for Tent–Hor. A title of Singer of Amun is given on the label attached to the front of these two shabtis. # From the Egypt Exploration Fund excavations at Abydos, North Cemeteries: Cemetery D, Tomb 32 (1900-1901 season). Perhaps from old stock of the Egypt Exploration Society given to the East Anglia Egyptian Society November 1925 no. 20 "Osirian figures".
