The votive mummiform shabti, of faience with blue glaze, details in black, wearing a short wig with sidelock (wick of youth) and a small goatee, adorned with a broad usekh collar, holding agricultural implements in each hand, seed sack on the back, and a column of hieroglyphic inscriptions on front naming “Hori” as the owner. 

Hori was the son of the prince Khaemweset and so the grandson of Ramesses II and the nephew of the pharaoh Merenptah. Hori was a member of the high priests of Ptah in Memphis and succeeded Nefer-renpet in this office, Sem-priest of Ptah, and also carried the title of ‘ruler of the craftsmen’. He became the high priest of Ptah in Memphis in the year 65/66 of the reign of Ramsses II and continued to serve under his uncle Mereptah. [Bart, A. Ancient Egypt - Ramesses II (2007)]
