Seller: luxor_antiques (56) 98.3%, Location: Luxor, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 223137608802 RARE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUE SHABTI LARGE USHABTI STATUE LUXOR EGYPT STONE BCDescription: USHABTI (SHABTI) USHABTI Shabti of the New Kingdom were of significantly better quality due to the improvements in the economy and stability of society. The numbers of Shabti interred with the deceased increased dramatically and it was not uncommon for a noble burial to include around forty Shabti, while a royal burial could contain many more. Shabtis no longer represented the deceased person, but rather their servants and labourers who gained a measure of immortality by having their form included in the tomb of their master. By the end of the New Kingdom, the quality of workmanship had again declined as Shabti were mass produced allowing more Egyptians to have the luxury of servants in the after world.USHABTI During this period Shabti were formed from a huge variety of materials including stone, wood, alabaster, faience, terracotta, ebony, bronze and glass. Shabti from the Eighteenth Dynasty were initially mummiform with crossed hands, wore heavy wigs and carried agricultural tools or funerary symbols. However, during the reign of Tuthmosis IV the design of Shabti changed and they were modeled as servants carrying out a variety of tasks. They were dressed in everyday clothes and carried any tools that would be required for their tasks. There were also a greater variety of forms including "double shabtis" (and by the Nineteenth Dynasty) "overseer shabtis". Osiriform (resembling Osiris) Shabtis bearing agricultural tools have also been recovered.Our Grantee is the Item Delivered to You As Shown in Pictures Therefore we recommend that you see the picture well and then take your decision and take your responsibility.
