A blue glazed faience overseer shabti with a reattached head that does not belong to it. The hieroglyphs on the front and back are in a vertical column. The name on the back begins 'Men....' It dates to the New Kingdom. This shabti is in the 'everyday dress' shape of Late New Kingdom shabtis. The hands on the skirt show that the figure is in an attitude of prayer. Shabtis were put in tombs to do work for their owners in the afterlife.
