Egyptian faience Ushabti of Ipethemetes in beautiful blue turquoise with crisp hieroglyphics in a vertical panel.
A fantastic Ushabti. Definitely the best for this person I have ever seen.
A front panel with hieroglyphics reads: SHD Wsir Ipt-Hm (t) = s ms (n) Hwt-Hr-m-Axt Maa-XRW = "The illuminated Osiris, Ipethemetes born of Hathoremakhet true of voice." The female person name Ipethemetes means "(the goddess) Ipet is her mistress." The hippopotamus goddess Ipet was worshiped as the mother of Osiris in Thebes. Ipethemetes represented the twelfth month goddess in the ancient Egyptian calendar. The personal name indicates that the Ushabti is from Thebes. The name Hathoremakhet means "Hathor is on the horizon."
