Ancient Egyptian Ushabtis / Shawabtis
Burial figures left in the tomb of the dead to serve as servants in the afterlife.

All my Egyptian artifacts were legally exported from Egypt prior to the 1970 UNESCO treaty, and my policies comply with all international trade laws regarding antiquities. Every item is legally and ethically acquired, coming from old American and European collections, museum deaccessions and auctions. Provenance is not always listed in every item description due to restricted space, but is provided on the certificate of authenticity that accompanies each item. Enjoy!

The Ushabti Spell: "Illumine the Osiris I, whose word is truth. Hail, Shabti. If the Osiris I be decreed to do any of the work which is to be done in the Khert-Neter (the cemetery), let everything which standeth in the way be removed from him – whether it be to plough the fields, or to fill the channels with water, or to carry sand from (the East to the West). 'Here am I', you shall say, 'I shall do it.'"

Shabtis: A Private View

This book is outstanding. I own 2 copies, one at home and one at the office. Every page is gorgeous and all the major shabti types are discussed, as well as examples from the notable tombs and Pharaohs of Egypt that have been recovered. It is more of a coffee table book than a reference but it is just one of my favorites.
