Shabty of Muthotep
The four faience shabties of Princess Muthotep show how some members of the royal family in the Twenty-second Dynasty adopted a practice formerly restricted to the less wealthy. Faience had become so closely associated with shabty manufacture that even a princess wanted shabties in this less expensive material.
