Ex-Zurgieh

To avoid undue work in the afterlife, Egyptians had themselves buried with numerous ushabtis, figurines that were intended to answer the summons of Osiris in place of the deceased. Ushabtis were usually mummiform, but their intention to work was made clear by the hoe usually carried over their shoulders and the basket on their backs. They were commonly inscribed with the name of the deceased inserted into the sixth chapter of the Book of the Dead.
