Ushabti of Padiamon

Ushabti of Padiamon

The statuette has a tripartite wig painted with black pigment that frames the face on which were painted eyes and eyebrows. The ushabti has his arms in relief and crossed on the chest and grips in the agricultural tools, broken line in black. On the legs are painted hieroglyphics arranged in a column, where the deceased is identified with the god Osiris. The formula shows "The Osiris, the father of the god, Padiamon justified."
The owner of this ushabti, known from other monuments, hold an important position in the Theban clergy during the XXI dynasty.
