EGYPTIAN GREEN GLAZED FAIENCE USHABTI: of typical mummiform, wearing a tripartite wig, false beard and arms crossed over the body holding farming implements in each hand and a seed bag over left shoulder for use while performing labor for its owner in the afterlife- the ushabti would be buried in the owner's tomb so that when called upon to perform daily manual labor in the afterlife by Osiris, the Ushabti would be able to do the work in its owner's place, giving the deceased individual an afterlife of luxury. Complete with nine horizontal bands of hieroglyphs from Chapter 6 of the Book of the Dead, which contain the necessary incantation spoken by the ushabti when called to labor. As typical with examples from the Late Period an integral plinth runs the length of the back and into a convenient base which is an original section of the piece.
