Turquoise-blue glazed faience composition shabti for Nestanebisheru, daughter of the high priest of Amun Pinodjem II and Neskhons, with details in black, depicted mummiform with arms crossed at the chest, holding a hoe in each hand, a seed-bag at the back, with eight vertical columns of hieroglyphs from Chapter 6b of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, reading "Illuminate the Osiris, the first great chief of the concubines of Amun and chief of the royal noble ladies...Nestanebisheru, true of voice. She says: O you shabti! If one calls...if one conscripts, if one assigns the Osiris Nestanebisheru...to cultivate fields, to irrigate riverbanks...to transport sand of the East to the West and vice versa...once obstacles have been removed from a man at his du-...ties, if the Osiris Nestanebisheru is summoned...to do any work that is to be done in the necropolis at any time, “I will do (it)! Here (I am)!".

Flexible Payment Plan


*This feature will soon be integrated at checkout 

At Medusa-art.com, we believe that anyone who desires to acquire antiquities should be able to do so. We are passionate about this belief and offer interest-free installments of up to 10 months on particular items (based on item value). Items eligible for payment plan are indicated by clicking on the Payment Plan link found on each item page.

HOW IT WORKS

    Payment plans are available on orders starting at $900.
    A deposit of $300 or 10%, which ever is greater, of the total price is required upon purchase.
    The balance must be paid in installments of at least $300 or 10% per months, whichever is greater.
    Select your monthly payment term from the dropdown menu at checkout.
    Title remains the property of Medusa Ancient Art, Inc. until payment is made in full.
    Your order will ship once payment is made in full. 


NOTE: Some items do not qualify for payment plans. All payment plan orders must be paid within 10 months from the order date. Exceeding this tiem frame will result in forfeiture. To get your order faster, you can pay-off your order in full or increase your monthly payments at any time.

REFUNDS & EXCHANGES on PAYMENT PLANS

You may cancel your payment plan purchase within three (3) months, a 15% restocking-fee will apply. We do not offer refunds or exchanges on items purchased on the payment plan. However, we provide our lifetime money-back guarantee of authenticity.
