Ushabtis evolved in the Middle Kingdom from the servant statues included among funerary gods. The earliest examples were crude statuettes in wax, clay or wood; later, they were fashioned as mummiform figures and, from the end of the 12th Dynasty, they were customarily inscribed with the "ushabti text" (chapter 6 of the Book of the dead which.Ancient Egyptian art includes painting, sculpture, architecture, and other forms of art, such as drawings on papyrus, created between BCE and CE.
