dc.description Egyptian, Late Period, Dynasties XXVI – XXXI, 664 – 332 or Ptolemaic, 332 – 30 B.C.E.
dc.description The carved ushabti in the form of the god Osiris – wearing the feathered Atef crown – is long and narrow, the face circular and with simple features. A rectangle serves as a nose, raised circles as eyes, and a raised line as a mouth. One ear remains, placed far back upon the head. The arms are folded across the chest with fingers represented by raised bands. There are two vertical lines running down the stomach, the leg, and upturned foot with hieroglyphic writing in between. The back is smooth and slightly rounded. The feet cannot support the piece’s weight, therefore it is made to be placed in the repose position.
