A very nice Egyptian Faience shabti for Chonsirdis (xnsw-ir-dj-s).
Of typical form, with tripartite wig, holding the flail and the hoe, with T-shaped
inscription over the front. Maybe the name is a sign that the owner of the shabti
comes from Thebes. The childgod Chons was part of the Theban Triade
(Amun-Mut-Chons). Very interesting is that the inscription ends with Dd=f
(he said). Normally then the shabti spell starts which is very uncommon on
shabtis with T-shaped inscriptions.
The shabti comes with the original old wooden stand.
Date: Late Period, circa 664-332 B.C.
Size: ca. 13 cm; c. 5.12 inches
Provenance: estate of a former assistant of President Johnson, who travelled a lot around the world
