Comments

Nesi-pa-hor-an (the name means: he who appears with a magnicificant face) was a hunchback according to the studies of his mummy. Nevertheless, he was an important priest. His titles include: Priest of Amun, Wab-priest of Khonsu, Writer of organisation of the temple of Amun and Priest of Maat.

Although damaged, this particular shabti has very well defined facial features compared to the other known examples.
