Decoration Green glaze shabti, black pigment detail. There is a head-dress and the figure appears to be holding something in each hand which is depicted as a straight line going to each shoulder and meeting around the back of the neck.
Inscriptions
Condition Intact and complete. Much of the glaze remains but in areas where it has rubbed of the green pigment is also missing. The painted detail remains in good condition, the face detail however was not painted and has greatly worn away. It would also seem that the left arm has worn down since the pigment is missing and the arm seems stunted cvompared to its companion. There are several obvious cracks around the feet.
