Ushabti of Uah-ib-Ra-em-akhet

An ushabti statue of Uah-ib-Ra-em-akhet
The ushabti, a mummiform and made with amould, wears a tripartite wig that leaves the ears uncovered and has the ritual beard; the arms, crossed on the chest, are covered by the bandage, which leaves only the hands, made in relief, that hold the agricultural tools. At the front there is a column of hieroglyphs in which the deceased is identified with Osiris. On the back the pillar reaches the edge of the wig and on the left shoulder a basket is visible, made from small squares that reproduce the intertwining of plant fibers. The lack of care in the rendering of the details, particularly in the carrying out of the facial details, suggest a dating of the late period.
