Description

Upper part of a mummiform shabti made of limestone. The figure has the arms crossed right over left. A tripartite wig has been painted black, and a large broad collar in yellow, black, and red. A column of hieroglyphs on the front begins "the illuminated one ...". Similar to shabtis from Deir el-Medina dating to the Ramesside Period. Part of the Woking Collection, which arrived to the Egypt Centre on long-term loan from Woking College in 2012 (Engel 2020).
