Egypt, Late Dynastic Period, 26th to 31st Dynasty, ca. 664 to 332 BCE. A tall, mold-made ushabti formed from a delicate blue-green faience. The mummiform figure stands atop an integral horizontal plinth, has a braided false beard, and wears a tripartite wig; the facial features are clear and easily-discernable. A T-shaped section of hieroglyphs runs along the abdomen and down the legs, and crossed hands hold a symbolic pick and hoe to sow the fields of Osiris in the afterlife. The lower half of the figure displays a light-brown hue, indicative of age-related discoloration, though this does not detract from the ancient elegance this statuette exudes! Comes with custom museum-quality acrylic stand. Size: 4.25" H (10.8 cm); 4.875" H (12.4 cm) on included custom stand.
