Faience Ushabti with hand-painted hieroglyphs to the front in black. Often called "Servants of the Afterlife," Ushabtis were placed in the tomb of the mummy and were intended to be servants that would magically come to life and do any chore the mummy might be called upon to perform in the afterlife. 18th Dynasty.
Faience standing Osiris, the God of vegetation and regeneration, standing on a base with arms at the sides, a chin beard, wearing a crown and a kilt. Hieroglyphs on the base and on the pillar in the back. Dirt patina with traces of blue. 26th Dynasty.
