Provenance: Deir el-Medina (?) – although these
shabtis are not mentioned in Bruyère’s Rapports des
Fouilles, 12 statuettes were stored in Deir el-Medina
magazines, and two other shabti figures were said to
be at l’IFAO in Cairo. Valbelle points out that shabtis
of a certain Imn-pr-Mwt were found in the priestly
cache, Bab el-Gasus. The shabtis of Mwt-pr-Imn bear
remarkable similarity to some Bab el-Gasus shabtis.
