Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391637746669 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An ancient Egyptian pottery shabti, dating to the New Kingdom to Third Intermediate Period, circa 1292 - 656 BC. Depicted in typical form, standing, with arms crossed and held to the chest. The shabti was a funerary figure, placed in the tombs of wealthy individuals that would fool the gods into thinking that the shabti was the deceased. This was important as all ancient Egyptians might be required to perform menial manual labour in the afterlife if summoned. It thus became common practice among the highly religious and superstitious elite to place these figures in their burial chambers, that could be substituted for themselves if need be. Height: 2 inches. Provenance: From the collection of the late julian bird (inventory number 1075). Julian bird was an avid collector of Egyptian antiquities. His collection was formed from the 1970s onwards, mainly from the uk market.
