Otherwise, they might better be defined by the generic term, funerary figurines.The shabtis were servant figures that carried out the tasks required of the deceased in the underworld. It was necessary for the owner's name to be inscribed on an ushabti, along with a phrase sending them to action, written in the hieratic script. The shawabti were a distinct class of funerary figurines within the area of Thebes during the New Kingdom. The term ushabti became prevalent after the 21st Dynasty and remained in use until Ptolemaic times. It is thought by some that the term ushabti meant "follower" or "answerer" in Ancient Egyptian, because the figurine "answered" for the deceased person and performed all the routine chores of daily life for its master in the afterlife that the gods had planned for them, although it would be difficult to reconcile this derivation with the form shawabtShipping : 7 to 12 days by DHL express with track number and Ebay support..Combined package : save your money For example (shipping cost for biggest item + half shipping cost of second item + half shipping cost of third item + Quarter shipping cost of fourth item + Quarter shipping cost of fifth + free shipping for any item more .)Duties and responsibilities : Your responsibility is the payment and the fair feedback,,and our responsibility is to receive your item as the picture exactly and the material as description exactly,, Therefore we recommend that you see the picture well and then take your decision and take your responsibility..Thank you and appreciate your time.......
