Shabti of Yi–hetep–em–mut



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. From Dynasty 22, Thebes. Transliteration and translation of the inscription: Wsir Ii-Htp-m-Mw.t mAa.t-xrw, "The Osiris, Yi–hetep–em–Mut, justified".
