Item description for Mere Scraps of Rough Wood?: 17th - 18th Dynasty Stick Shabtis in the Petrie Museum and Other Collections (Ghp Egyptology) (Ghp Egyptology) by Paul Whelan...

This monograph represents the first comprehensive investigation of the characteristically crude wooden "stick" shabtis of the late 17th and early 18th Dynasties. Developed from a case study of examples in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and building upon scholarship that has until now focussed almost exclusively on the importance of their inscriptions, the work offers new perspectives on stick shabtis and their role in the cultic milieu during a transitional period in ancient Egyptian history. The broad based analysis draws upon excavation reports, archival material and a comparative examination of the physical characteristics of stick shabtis in the Petrie Museum and from other collections, in order to challenge the generally held view that besides their inscriptions these simple figures are little more than, to quote Flinders Petrie, "mere scraps of rough wood". The book is profusely illustrated throughout and incorporates a detailed catalogue of stick shabtis in the Petrie Museum as well as a number of previously unpublished examples from public and private collections.
