Description
Ancient Egyptian Faience Shabti 9.0 cm - (1)
Third Intermediate Period, 21th/22th Dynasty.

This ushabti figurine is depicted as a worker holding two hoes for work in the fields of Osiris in the afterlife. He is wearing a tripartite wig, which falls down between the shoulders. He has an Osiris-type beard, which ends in a tight forward curl. Only the hands, crossed over the chest and holding the already-mentioned agricultural implements, emerge from the mummiform shroud covering the entire body.
