Hieroglyphs caricatures tell a story as to who, what and where or more information. Most commonly made of Clay type Pottery some having a coating called faience, Faience is a ground up quartz into a fine powder, then made into a paint, as the item is placed into the very hot firs, turned into many colors of greens, to blue, some were not glazed at all and are just Clay/Pottery The were also inscribed with a spell from the Book of the Dead and placed in the tomb. The deceased were called upon to do labor. A magical spell animated the shawabti. The amount of shabti placed into the tomb increased over the years, until there was a figurine provided for every day of the year, to insure an eternity of those within the Tumb. There are many types of Shabtis in museums all over the world, some represent the king and the other represents king's servants. >>> I will Combine S&H for $3.00 extra per won auction on the Egypt items. *** Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. ** Private Collection Estate itemsProvenance:Egypt, Material:Pottery/Stone?, California Prop 65 Warning:NONE
