Ancient Egypt, Third Intermediate to early Late Dynastic Period, 21st to 26th Dynasty, ca. 1070 to 525 BCE. A lovely mold-formed faience ushabti covered in beautiful blue-green glaze. The figure stands in mummiform atop an integral plinth, holds the symbolic pick and hoe in hands crossed atop the chest, and has a petite seed bag behind the left shoulder. The narrow face features bulging eyes, a slender nose, and full lips beneath a tripartite wig, and a black-painted hieroglyphic inscription is presented on the legs and body. A wonderful example of ancient Egyptian funerary art! Size: 0.875" W x 3.3" H (2.2 cm x 8.4 cm).
