Description:

Painted wooden shabti of a woman. The shabti is mummiform in shape with arms crossed right over left over the chest and holding a broad hoe in the right hand and a narrow hoe in the left. She wears a long wig tied at the nape of the neck with a seshed headband, a long white garment and a bracelet on the right wrist. A rectangular bag/basket is suspended on the middle of her back by two cords over the shoulders. There is one column of hieroglyphs painted in black down the front of the lower body, framed by a red sash tied at the waist.
There is some damage to the face, arms and back of the shabti. It stands on a modern wooden pedestal.
