After 15 years the website clearly needed an update of look and feel. Also, content wise there was a need for an update.
So, apart from the different colours and layout, what has changed? The focus remains on publishing shabtis held in private collections around the world, as the only online database to do so. The parallel publications of shabtis for one owner (museums and private collections) also remains and is updated with many recent publications. Finally, the review of shabti book publications also remains and is updated with recent publications.
New will be a blog on this main page, that will include posts on Egyptology conferences, acutions, fairs and so on. New is also the possibility to react to these posts!
Gone is the Shabtis for Sales section and the cache 2 overview as a more elaborate overview will be published on www.ushabtis.com.
Hope you will enjoy the new version and please leave me some feedback!
