EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite Ushabti, created during the Ramesside Period in ancient Egypt. Crafted from limestone and standing at a height of 21.6 cm, this particular Ushabti was made for a woman named Wia. Ushabtis were funerary figurines that held great significance in Egyptian burial rituals. Placed within tombs, these statuettes were believed to serve as servants or companions for the deceased in the afterlife. The hieroglyphs adorning this Ushabti's surface further emphasize its purpose and importance. The level of detail and craftsmanship evident in this sculpture is truly remarkable. Every curve and contour has been meticulously carved, resulting in a lifelike representation of Wia herself. This portrait-like quality adds a personal touch to the piece, allowing us to catch a glimpse into the life of this ancient Egyptian woman. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported back thousands of years to an era filled with mystique and wonder. It serves as a tangible link between our modern world and the rich history of ancient Egypt. Through Fine Art Finder's collaboration with Bridgeman Images, we have been granted access to this extraordinary artifact that sheds light on one aspect of Egyptian funerary practices. Let us appreciate not only its aesthetic beauty but also its cultural significance as it continues to captivate audiences around the globe today.
