Front part of the feet are missing. Some chips on the faience coat: right hand, left arm, and wig. The faience coat is solid. The black paint has turned brownish, and the glaze has turned greenish/yellowish -likely due to the effect of humidity.

This shabti figure was produced at the 21D ateliers. The shape of the statuette is pretty similar to that of well-known shabti figures from the second cache at Deir el-Bahari and from Deir el-Medina. For a comparison, see the shabtis of Payefadjer* (DeB) or those of Mutperamun** (DeM).
