THIRD INTERMEDIATE PERIOD, 21ST DYNASTY, 1081-931 B.C.
3 7/8 in. (76 grams, 98 mm high).

A bright blue glazed worker shabti modelled on a rectangular base, arms crossed over the chest, detailing in black to the wig and eyes, holding a pair of hoes, a seed bag to the back, the hair tied with a seshed headband; a vertical column of hieroglyphs to the front of the body naming the wab-priest Pa-di-Khonsu-iy; repaired.

PROVENANCE:
From a Worcester deceased estate.
Property of a Cambridgeshire gentleman.

Accompanied by an academic report by Egyptologist Paul Whelan.

See Janes, G., The Shabti Collections 6: A Selection from World Museum, Liverpool, Cheshire, 2016, pp.270-271, nos.125a-b, for an overseer and worker shabti for Pa-di-Khonsu-iy.
