Ushabti is just one of the names given to these common Ancient Egyptian funerary figures. They are also known as Shabti or Shawabti, with several spelling variations. The use of Ushabti began in the Old Kingdom of Egypt around 2600 to 2100 BCE. They are so common an artefact for this period that they appear in most Egyptian exhibitions and displays. 

Made of various materials and in various sizes, including life-sized, these figures were produced in large numbers and placed in the tombs of the deceased to act as servants to the dead. 

It was common for these figures to have hieroglyphs written on them, although many figures appear without the inscription as the writing has not withstood the tests of time. These inscriptions were short spells from the Book of the Dead, the Ancient  Egyptian funerary text written to guide the deceased through their journey into the afterlife.

This replica has been hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact. It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade to emulate the same techniques the original potters would have employed. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, a standard feature of the original pottery, giving each piece a unique character.
