Comments

Prov.: Canadian collection, sold by UK ADA dealer

No parallels are published for this shabti. However, i know of another one also sold by the same UK ADA dealer.

This shabti is exceedingly rare as it features a hieratic inscription on a faience New Kingdom piece. Furthermore it also mentions the quite rare title of this shabti: seal bearer of the army. The shabti is translated at the BM as being for the owner Amen-Heru.

The blue faience is mainly worn although the black background unfortunately takes away some of its blue.

Also note the bandages running from the front panel to the back.
