Comments: In addition to the rare faience example published as SC/75, herewith another faience example of the King Psusennes is published.
Note that the faience is more blue than green as is SC/75. According to Schneider the discoularation due to contact with oxygen makes originally blue shabtis turn into green. Apperently, this example is better preserved then some of the others.

Note the resemblance between this faience example and the faience shabtis of pharao Seti I.

For further references and details I refer to SC/75.
