A large Egyptian Wood and Resin Shabti, 20th Dynasty, ca. 1187-1069BC

carved from sycamore wood, shown mummiform with long tripartite wig, the arms in a horizontal position over the chest as is typical for this period. The figure is heavily coated in black resin, with details in yellow pigment most being lost particularly where the name and titles would be written. 

Dimensions:  Height:  7 1/2 inches (19 cm) 

Condition:  Intact with heavy losses to the black resin coating. As with many wood shabtis, an unusual and interesting piece, especially the resin coating.
