Seller: aroads2011 (2,866) 99.6%, Location: Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Ships to: US, Item: 263797655893 This is a collection of three Ushabati. The first with inscription measures 4.3 inches tall, 1.2 inches wide. The smaller two are two inches tall with a small drilled hole as if to be worn as a pendant or other adornment. Faience, a paste made of ground quartz or of sand with a high percentage of quartz, was one of the most commonly used materials in producing ushabtis. The faience paste was pressed into molds and then fired. When baked, the glaze would migrate to the outside producing a smooth glassy surface. The quality and color of the glaze depended on the impurities in the paste. Faience ushabtis range in color from bright dark blue to various shades of turquoise and pale green. Ushabtis were placed in tombs and were intended to act as servants or minions for the deceased. Called “answerers,” they carried inscriptions asserting their readiness to answer the gods' summons to work. Certificate of Authenticity , though could possibly be a reproduction. Material: Faience
