The ushabti figures — artistically perfect and finely made — were purchased from the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo by soldiers of the Polish Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade during WW II and subsequently granted to the Archaeological Museum.
The pillar at the back of the figure reaches the lower edge of a tripartite wig, finely fashioned in regular wisps exposing the ears. A face of distinct features, a narrow, braided beard. In its hands crossed on the breast, it is holding work tools: in the left hand — a hoe, in the right hand — a plough and a string on which a woven bag for seeds is suspended. Half of the figure is filled with the hieroglyphic inscription derived from the Book of the Dead and contains the name of the deceased: Nefer-ib-Ra-sa-Neit.
The ushabti figures were found in 1929 in the tomb of a person who — as the inscription on the sarcophagus indicates — bore the title, “guardian of the royal seal.” The tomb was a part of the temple complex of Pharaoh Userkaf. What has been preserved from the tomb inventory are three alabaster canopic jars, as well as 336 ushabti figures, scattered among different collections all over the world.
