More details

  • The tomb of Udja-Her was excavated in Saqqara in 1902 by Alessndro Barsanti.
    So a year before he found the grave of Hekaemsaf near the Unas Pyrmide with stylistically identical shabtis for Hekaemsaf.
    The shabtis therefore not only come from the same period but from the same workshop.

    In contrast to the more common Hekaemsaf Ushabtis, only very few copies of Udja-Her are known!
