Comments

A large group of the shabtis of this owner recently appeared on the art market, bought as a group by the previous owner, collected in Germany in the 1930-1950's.
The shabtis either have a black wig like this one or a striated wig. Quite rare is the inscription on the front row and followed by a second row on the right side.
Transliteration: 1st row: sHD wsir it-nTr n Imn, 2nd row: [pA-Sd-mr.f mAa xrw]. The glyphs can be shown as follows:
