Comments

Provenance: Acquired by Dr. John Franklin Goucher in Egypt, 1895. Donated by Dr. Goucher to the Goucher College Museum, Baltimore. After the College Museum was disbanded, the shabti was acquired by Dr. J.P. Scanlan in 1961. On loan to the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts, Columbus, Ohio, during the 1970’s. Acquired from Dr. J.P. Scanlan by the current owner.
Traces of white, red, yellow and black paint. Decorations simulating mummy bandages, note especially the back side. I have seen this only on NK shabtis.
