Ushabtis and Ushabti boxes from the tomb of Yuya and Tuya

Ushabtis and Ushabti boxes from tomb KV 46 of Yuya and Tuya, parents of Queen Tiya, wife of King Amenhotep III, in the Valley of the Kings at Luxor. Ushabtis are statues in the shape of the deceased in the form of mummies. They were placed next to the deceased in the burial chamber to answer his call to them. One of the most important duties of the Ushabti was to perform actions in the Afterlife instead of the deceased. They were made of faience, stone, wood, or even gold and were the servants of the dead.
