Comments

Parallel in Glenn Janes, Shabtis in a private view, nr. 20. Two other examples appeared on the art market.
The face is a bit unusual and suggests a Nubian background. Also unusual is the blue paint for the details. Note that the back side of the shabti shows waterpots (only still visible on the right side).
