Ushabti figure

XXXth Dynasty

Faience with bright blue glaze

Height: 4.2cm

Museum number: A94

Vermeule catalogue number: Vermeule 13help-vermeule-catalogue-number

Curatorial note

The details of this small ushabti figure are in relief. The group of figures of which this is one (with Soane Museum A46 and A47: the three are Vermeule cat. nos. 11-18) are probably all from one tomb. They are cast from three different moulds; their original heights probably varied from 5.5 cm to 6.5 cm. (2.1 to 2.5 inches). The discoloration seems to be due to the carbonisation of the sacred oil, which was poured over them. All the figures are bearded, as was the rule in and after the XXVIth dynasty.
