A mummiform shabti of green/blue faience, which dates to the Third Intermediate Period. The figure wears a tripartite wig with a seshed-headband painted black. The arms are crossed over the chest and hold two hoes, which are painted black. A hatched seed basket has been painted on the back. Two black painted circles have been added to represent the eyes. It was a gift from University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
