Egyptian Shabti of Akhenaten (Tut’s father), Late Dynasty XVIII Circa 1352-1336 BC
Akhenaton was a pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died perhaps in 1336  or 1334 BC. He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing monotheistic worship centered on the Aten.
After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as “the enemy” in archival records.
Interest in Akhenaten increased with the discovery in the Valley of the Kings, at Luxor, of the tomb of King Tutankhamun, who has been proved to be Akhenaten’s son according to DNA testing in 2010.
The figure is the upper part of  a quartzite shabti of Akhenaten wearing a nemes-headdress with ‘plait’ down his back and uraeus carved on front, with long beard, holding a flail and crook in his crossed hands, with pierced ear lobes and lips bearing faint traces of red pigment, his faintly modeled eyes, brow and hairline detailed in black.
