Egyptian funerary figure Faience statue ushabi

Details

I think this figure is composed of Egyptian Faience. That is a quartz like substance which was prized in Egypt for its beautiful glaze. This is a quite large Ushabi much larger than most and with very fancy hieroglyphics on the front . Stands 7/ 1/2' tall. ' I I think this is called an Egyptian USHABTI. These are some of the most interesting and collectable artifacts from ancient Egypt. Ushabties are magical statues found in tombs. Egyptians believed these Ushabties would come to life and serve the dead in their after life and do any unpleasant chore the deceased might be called upon to perform in the afterlife. Because the daily life of ancient Egyptians centered on agriculture, these Ushabties took on the appearance of field workers. They were mummiform, so as to be identified with Osiris, the god of the dead, but their hands were protruding from the bandages so they could do the work.. I am not sure of its age or heritage, as we acquired it in an estate sale about ten years ago.

Sold as found and shown in the photos. I believe it might be a pharoah of some sort.
