The shabtis for Pa-di-Pepet are very recognisable due to the typical shape of the head, further enhanced by the rare and well worked out two columns wide back pillar. The craftmenship displayed on this shabti is very nice as most of this period.

The shabtis were sold to tourists visiting the site in the years after its discovery in 1893. Therefore, the shabtis of this owner can be found in many private collections. However, also the cairo museum has some (on display as well) as do many other musea. For a comparable overview i refer to Glenn Janes nr. 87.
