The shabti workers of King Takelot I comprise two well-differentiated series: the first one shows a classic NK look, with well-designed tripartite wigs tied up with a headband (no other 22D Tanite king wears the seshed); the second series includes more diverse shabtis, with curled headdresses and very realistic facial details. The one shown here belongs to the first series. See also SC/56.
