This petite and detailed Egyptian ushabti figure is unified within an interesting selection of beads featuring Nile clay and blue cylinder tube beads. Small polished lapis lazuli beads blend well with light blue cylinder beads that are placed to add symmetry and contrast.

The central feature ushabti has a strong personality and creates the focal point in a necklace whose main components are sourced directly from Egypt.

Always unique, this necklace and all of the other beaded creations are made by my sister Haley.

Background information for Ushabti figures:-

The name stems from a tree known as the Sha-wab, as early figures were made from its wood. Variations of the name include 'Ushabti' and 'Shawabti'.

Later figures employed a great variety of materials such as clay, faience{opaque blue green glass} plaster and stone depending on what you could afford. These figures were placed within the tomb of an individual to magically come to life performing any work required by the god Osiris in the afterlife. A modest burial would have one or two figures, however during the late period the quantities included within a burial increased to allow a shabti for each day of the year plus overseers. Some burials had even more
