Ushabti funerary figures – like this one – were placed in tombs with other grave goods and were intended to act as a surrogate of the deceased owner to undertake menial tasks in the afterlife. Ushabti is translated to “answerer”.

 

From a very large collection from an Egyptian family. This figure was made in the 17th Century by Egyptian craftsmen.

 

Very unusual timeline but after hearing the complete story from my agent in Canada, I do believe this carved mask is a few hundred years old.

 

Stand is not included.
