    Rare Egyptian pottery Faience Shabti Ancient Art & Antiquities

     
    An ancient Egyptian white faience shabti of Mut Pepu ( pottery ). The mummiform figure wears a broad collar, a tripartite wig, the crossed hands hold hoes, and a seed bag hangs from the back. A vertical Hieroglyphic inscription is painted on the front reading, "The illuminated one, the Osiris, Lady of the House, Mut Pepu, true of voice."
     
    Shabtis were first introduced in the Middle Kingdom as substitutes for the mummy in case it was destroyed. During the Second Intermediate Period inscribed wooden figures called shabtis (after the Egyptian word for wood, swab) began to be placed in tombs. During the New Kingdom, shabtis assumed a new role as servant figures for the deceased
