Large ushabti, with pleasant facial expression, depicted mummiform, with hands emerging from tightly-fitting garment, hands holding implements, seedsack suspended over shoulder, wearing a partially striated tripartite wig, and with 10 lines of hieroglyphic text, reading "pA-dj-jj-m-Htp" for the owner. Probably pronounced "Padiemhotep." The name means "the one whom 'Come-In-Peace' gives". The rest of the text is likely a standard Chapter 6 Book of the Dead inscription. 26th Dynasty, 685-525 B.C. 7 1/2 inches high. Appears to be a baking imperfection on the knees. From an old Virginia estate.
