Gli Ushabti, cioè i “rispondenti”, dovevano rispondere e sostituire il defunto in tutti i lavori che gli venivano imposti nell’aldilà. Erano delle piccole statue che costituivano un elemento indispensabile del corredo funebre.

Ve n’erano di due tipi:

mummiforme, e in questo caso rappresentava l’eterno spirito del defunto che scaturiva dalla fusione del Ba e del Ka, oppure raffiguranti l’ immagine di servitori o portatori di offerte.

Tra gli ushabti troviamo anche le cosiddette “statue del Ka”, che servivano da sostituto del corpo per ospitare il Ka del defunto, quando ritornava per assimilare, per loro tramite, l’essenza dei cibi lasciati dai vivi sulla tavola delle offerte.

In origine le statuette erano scolpite in legno di persea.

In seguito i materiali impiegati variarono a secondo della classe sociale del defunto e spesso, dato che la statuina era offerta da terzi, dalla tipologia del rapporto che li legava al defunto, infatti, sotto i piedi di alcune statuette dei faraoni, sono incise delle dediche da parte dei funzionari che donavano l’ushabti per offrire i propri servizi nell’aldilà.

Spesso veniva inciso il testo del sesto capitolo del “Libro dei Morti“:

”O questo ushabti di (nome del defunto), se io sono chiamato e messo in nota per fare i lavori che si compiono abitualmente nella duat te ne sarà affidato l’incarico. Sostituisciti me in ogni momento per coltivare i campi, per irrigare le rive, per trasportare sabbia ad oriente e ad occidente.

Eccomi, dirai”.
O tu ushabti di (nome del defunto) ascoltami!

Se io sono chiamato o condannato ad eseguire un qualsiasi lavoro che si impone alle anime nell’aldilà, sappi o ushabti, che è su di te che incomberà questo onere e che dovrai farvi fronte con i tuoi strumenti.

In ogni momento tu sarai chiamato al mio posto dai sorveglianti della duat per seminare i campi o per irrigarli, o per trasportare sabbia dall’oriente all’occidente.

”Eccomi sono ai tuoi ordini” questo è ciò che devi rispondere.

As I leant down I simultaneously thrust into her and kissed her, I whispered in her ear that I cannot believe she let them fuck and cum in her and demanded that she lick every trace of the two men off me. “What, no, no, no, not two, it was just Gary, what do you think . . .” Her sentence was cut short by me pushing her legs down back to the bed, making her thong stretch from side to side of her face gagging her. “JUST GARY” I said “you dirty fucking slut”, as I held her there in that position, I pistoned into her furiously, using my legs, hips and bodyweight, Stacey whimpered and muffled encouragement, after a couple of minutes she was shaking through an orgasm, before tapping me vigorously on my hip, I released her from being pinned. She immediately began talking “that was amazing, the best”. I hooked her legs over my shoulders and carried on driving into her, using my now free hands to squeeze her tits and pinch her nipples. “ I want YOUR cum” and “I’m sorry, I really am, I love you” I cut her off again, this time by pulling her panties off and gagging her with them. Wow they were wet, in hindsight I should have wrung them out over the dirty bitch.

    to inform the reality however I will definitely come again again.

  32. I think everything posted made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid, but suppose you added a headline
    that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Ushabti;
    i rispondenti – Religione – Antico Egitto di Iside is a little plain. You should
    look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers
    interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it
    would make your website a little livelier.
