Ushabti of the priest Meri-Ptah-nefer-her
The statuette ushabti, of the mummiform type and made with a mould, belonged to the priest Meri-Ptah-nefer-her. The statue wears a smooth tripartite wig, has the ritual beard and from the mantle that surrounds the figure only his hands exit, which carry agricultural tools. The back shows an engraved pillar that reaches back to cover the wig.
