The Amasis Collection is a major collection of Egyptian antiquities. In this catalogue, the author has
focused on an important group of shabti figures in the Collection, each of
which has been fully researched including full details of provenance. Many
illustrious names are to be found in the list of owners, including 30 shabtis
for kings, queens and their families.
The Amasis Collection, which includes artefacts from a number of different
cultures and periods, was started in the 1960s by a dedicated couple from
Amsterdam and until now only a small number of people have ever been allowed to
see it. One of the lucky ones was the Dutch artist and author Jean Thomassen
who was given permission to publish photos and information about several pieces
in his books.
Shabtis from Gerard van Hulst’s Collection are included in this catalogue together with examples from the
famous collector and dealer Dr. John Möger and numerous others.
A few pages also show other highlights from The Amasis Collection.
