Uschebti

The so-called utschebis, small figures, belong to the most important burial objects. After the recitation of a certain part of a book chapter, they were believed to help the dead person in the other world, by doing the field work. For this reason, they wore the tools in the crossed hands, like the staples and adze, while over shoulders they wore the pack basket.
Original: British Museum, London. Egypt, Late period, the 26th Dynasty, around 600 BC.
