Shabti of Yi–hetep–em–mut


Currently not on display


Blue faience mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with fairly short front lappets, with a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in relief. The face has eyes with brows added in black. A large diamond–hatched rectangular basket with shoulder straps is painted quite low on the back. A vertical column of hieroglyphs on the front of the shabti reads: "The Osiris, Yi–hetep–em–Mut, justified". There is some damage to the lower face and back of the head is missing. Broken at the waist and mended together.
