    Shabti 
A funerary statue or doll, from Egyptian Mythology.


Also known as a ushabti, shawabt, Shabtiu or Shabty. A shabti is funerary statue or doll that is usually buried with the deceased. This is because in Egyptian Mythology the Shabti would serve as sort of stand in for the deceased. They were often made out of clay, stone, glass, metal or even wax. Shabtis have also been used in numerous rituals and spells. They can normally be found in two Variations.

Variations

  • Entity: Serves as a replacement for normal servants or slaves, and as such preform such jobs like farming, cleaning, etc. Depending on the depiction it may be some sort of Golem, Living Statue or Homunculus (or the animal equivalent).
  • Ritualistic Object: A form of Sympathetic Magic and could be seen as a type of Reality Changing Miniature. They can serve as a stand in in several different. One way is as some sort of Voodoo Doll, though instead of actually doing anything physical to the shabti one would use spells or rituals with it to either harm or even heal the individual. It is noted that in this type the shabti doesn't have to be a figurine of the individual only represent them and as such can be in the form of object associated with said individual.

Can also be considered a form of treasure either for what it's made out of or the art. Either way in such cases it's likely to actually be one of the Treasure Tropes or Luxury Tropes.

Expect to see plenty of Living Statues and Golems here.
