Egyptian Glazed Faience Ushabti w/ Fine Blue Hue
Item Details
Description
Egypt, Late Dynastic Period, 26th to 31st Dynasty, ca. 664 to 332 BCE. A hand-built faience ushabti of a petite size that is covered in lustrous blue glaze.

The face features protruding ovoid eyes, a broad nose, bulging cheeks, and a false beard, all framed within the lappets of a tripartite wig. A lovely example of ancient Egyptian funerary tradition!
