This shawabty dates to the Late Period. The typology of this period consists of a tripartite wig, long beard, back pillar and base, with the figure holding the pick on the right shoulder and hoe and cord to a small seed bag on the left. Here the back is completely flat and there is no seed bag and no wig line indicated. The arms are crossed opposite right over left. The shawabty is uninscribed. The shawabty is very worn.
