Large, faience Ushabti with arms crossed, holding a crook and flail, wearing a headdress, a chin beard and standing on a base. Incised vertical hieroglyphs on the front. Often called "Servants of the Afterlife," Ushabtis were placed in the tomb of the mummy and were intended to be servants that would magically come to life and do any chore the mummy might be called upon to perform in the afterlife. Traces of black paint on the headdress, chin beard, hands, crook and flail. Traces of green. Dirt patina. 18th Dynasty.
