Wooden shabti of Ramses II, reused as an Osiris-figure in the 21st Dynasty. Original detail: a striped nemes-headdress, modelled face, crossed hands holding two hoes, seed-basket on the back, seven rows of Hieroglyphic text down the legs. Secondary decoration includes: crude cutting of the nemes headdress to resemble a tripartite wig, the addition of a tenon at the top of the head for the attachment of an Atef-crown, remains of black pitch and the addition of a long rectangular plinth.
