Shabti of Nen

Shabti of Nen
This shabti of serpentine represents a mummified person, who holds a was-sceptre and the ankh-sign of life in its hands. The statuette, which dates from the Middle Kingdom, bears a hieroglyphic text written in a vertical column. The owner was a "Chief of Weavers", named Nen, son of Senankh.
