Catalogue Description:
Large alabaster ushabti of Tirhaqa (688-663 BC). The figure is made of an extremely beautiful alabaster which appears different form that usually found in Egypt, the veining being much less pronounced. The figure is of exactly the same type as 39.2. Condition: Workmanship excellent. There are several deposits and stains on the back apparently caused by water.
