Green glazed composition shabti of Padiast with a striated lappet-wig, a modelled face with a plaited beard, crossed hands in relief holding a high relief adze, hoe and the string of the seed-basket which hangs over the shoulder, the legs are inscribed with part of Chapter 6 of The Book of The Dead in nine rows of incised Hieroglyphs; there is a back-pillar and a plinth beneath the feet.
