EGYPTIAN USHABTIS

   The ushabti (also called shabti or shawabti, with a number of variant spellings) were funerary figurines used in Ancient Egypt. They were placed in tombs among the grave goods and were intended to act as substitutes for the deceased, should he/she be called upon to do manual labor in the afterlife. They were used from the Middle Kingdom (around 1900 BC) until the end of the Ptolemaic Period nearly 2000 years later. Most ushabtis were of minor size, and many produced in multiples -- they sometimes covered the floor around a sarcophagus. Exceptional ushabtis are of larger size, or produced as a one-of-a-kind master work.

THE LAND OF THE PHARAOHS

72444 - THE LINEN CLOTH AND MUMMY BEADS, these were both found in a Egyptian burial site that dates from the 24th Dynasty to the 26th Dynasty which dates from 1085 BC - 525 BC. During this period, Thebes and Memphis were sacked by the Assyrians. The linen cloth was wrapped around the mummy in many layers thus hundreds of feet of linen was used on a single mummy. In between the layers of cloth amulets and scarabs were inserted for good luck. The beads known as "Mummy beads" were used by the thousands in ancient burials.

The most popular and extensively produced beads were made of faience, quartzite paste that was occasionally glazed and then baked. The paste was rolled around a string and the string was cut into sections for thin disc beads or longer tube beads. When the beads were baked, the string burned away, leaving the hole in the bead. During the Late Period in Egypt, circa 1085 BC, faience beads were produced primarily for funerary use. Egyptians believed that to insure comfort in the netherworld, the deceased should be surrounded by items from daily life. Thousands of faience beads were buried with the mummy, sometimes having been woven into a shroud to cover the outer linen wrapping of the mummy. The Egyptian word SHA meant luck, and SHA SHA became the word for bead, suggesting the beads could bring good luck. Both the beads above and fine linen are authentic relics from the Land of the Pharaohs.
