Shabti of Tent-shed-khnosu


Currently not on display


Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with faint traces of a seshed headband tied at the back added in brownish–black. The arms are crossed above the waist, and the hands hold a pair of small hoes added in the same colour. A square–hatched rectangular basket with shoulder straps is painted on the back of the shabti. The face is poorly modelled. There are faint traces of painted used to show the eyes and brows. A vertical column of hieroglyphs on the front reads, “The Osiris, Tent–shed–khonsu”.
