The people I acquired this ushabti/shabti from told me it was purchased when the MET in NYC had a surplus of Egyptian Artifacts. Well, I own it now, but would like much more info about it. I just don't know who to contact. Any help in IDing this piece would be grand. Thanks!

    I have been to Egypt a number of times. You can buy this type of object just about anywhere. Fakes abound. Do you know for certain it is genuine? I guess that would be my first step. Local universities with an Egyptology department might be a start.
