A wonderfully detailed Egyptian shabti made of Nile clay, presumably for a high official due to the tripartite wig type.
The body unfortunately has a loss but one can see the bottom hieroglyphs reading 'Meses', The upper section would have referred to Osiris.
This style of shabti reminds me of the very unique still of sarcophagi.
Egypt, Late New Kingdom, 19th - 20th Dynasty, C. 1100 BC.
Size: 10 cms Height.
Condition: Loss of material which would have shown the tools being wielded.
Provenance: Private Collection, Denmark, Hans Moller Hansen. Hansen acquired many stunning Egyptian antiquities during his visit to Egypt in the late 1920's. After his parting in 1958, many of the items in his collection was passed down to his daughter and then to her son. Many of the items in this collection have been treasured by the family for over 90 years. It is with great honour Pegasus Gallery Antiquities offers these for sale to the market.
