dc.description Green-glazed ushabti with frontal inscription, a break at its lower end repaired. The remarkable condition, crossed arms, and indecipherable nature of the hieroglyphs points to the piece being a forgery (as opposed to an honest reproduction) imitating the style of the Late Period (Dynasties XXVI – XXXI, 664 – 332 B.C.E.). A piece made for a wealthy commoner would not have the crossed arms reserved for the pharaoh, while one made for a king would often be of a high-quality material, such as true faïence-glazed ceramic, Lebanese cedar, or stone.
