Integral moulded base and back pillar. Uninscribed. Modelled Face with false beard and wig, and hands which hold agricultural tools - a pick, hoe and seed bag which can be seen as cross-hatched lines on the back of the left shoulder. The term Ushabti translates as "Answerer" and these figures of agricultural workers were placed into tombs so that when the gods called on the deceased to plow the fields of paradise in the afterlife, the ushabt's would answer to do the work for the tomb owner. Condition: The statuette is in perfect condition with no breaks, chips or restoration. Do not be fooled by sellers who claim a statue is in excellent condition when it has been broken into several fragments and glued back together. Not everything ancient is broken!
