Ushabti figure, also spelled shabti or shawabty, are the small statuettes that are often found in ancient Egyptian tombs. Their purpose was to act as a magical substitute for the deceased owner when the gods requested him to undertake menial tasks in the afterlife. In the Late Period burials generally included hundreds of mass produced shabti, one for each day of the year, which were mass produced in moulds with a resultant reduction in quality. Shabtis were generally made from faience, often tinged with soft greens and blues. Provenance: This item is not a UK find and as such is not subject to the Portable Antiquities Scheme.
