In this publication i have updated the parallels for Psamtek son of Mery-Neith with the new examples that have come to light, following our book with the similar name. Priority has been given to the private collection examples and their current whereabouts.
Publication: The worker shabtis of Tayu-heret
In this all new publication a parallel overview is provided for the worker shabtis of Tayu-heret, buried at the famous Royal Cache. Credits go to Patrice Renault who wrote most of this article and identified at least 4 significant different sets. The worker shabtis of Tayu-heret are very beautiful and of the highest quality. Strangely so, only 59 workers are known, of the likely original 365! If people know of ones we have missed, please send it to us for addition. The overseers were published earlier here.
SC/151: Striding TIP overseer
Striding shabtis are surprisingly rare and they can be cleary dated to a specific time. Read all about it in the newly published shabti as SC/151!
The shabti newly published as SC/150 is for a 19th Dynasty individual called Wep-Mes. This New Kingdom fragmentary black serpentine shabti has some beautiful elements such as a part of a Ba-bird! Read more in the publication.
Publication: Update of the Nesy-per-Nub parallel overview
Earlier this year we published a parallel overview of the beautiful shabtis of Nesy-per-nub. Since then, Patrice Renault has updated this publication as more have come to light. Although the document is allready a staggering 100 pages plus, i am sure that many more will come to light as the numbers in museums seem to be limited. Enjoy the new publication!
