The green and blue tones were achieved by the addition of a few grams of copper oxide extracted from malachite or azurite...

This is a well documented shabti for „The Osiris, Nes-Mut, justified“. The shabtis of Nes-Mut were discovered during the excavations of the Ramesseum around 1895. The vertical column of painted inscription is almost illegible, but the shabti is attributed to Nes-Mut based on the old label on the back and the similar iconography in terms of shape of other published Nes-Mut shabtis in Museums, books, etc.
