Shabti funerary figurine

This mould-made pale green faience shabti is inscribed with the name of the owner, Djed-khonsu-iwf-ankh. The hieroglyphs and decorated areas are painted in dark brown, turn the object fully around and you can see the painted hair tie and basket on the back of the shabti. 

Despite being mould-made, if you zoom on the face, you can see the slight definition of ears; although this may have been mass produced, this shabti is still very carefully designed.
