Our gallery will be exhibiting at the Masterpiece fair in London from the 28th June until July 4th.

Among some of our other finest works, we will be bringing along an ancient Egyptian funerary figurine, known as a shawabti.

What is a shawabti?

Sometimes also known as ushabtis, shabtis or shawabtys, they were made in great numbers to accompany the dead to the tomb. They are “answerers” and responded to the physical demands made upon the deceased — whether commoner, nobleman, or royal — in the afterlife. In that, they acted as substitute laborers so that the deceased individual could pass eternity in leisure.
