The tomb of Tja-Enna-Hebu was found by Alexandre Barsanti and Gaston Maspero at Sakkara in 1900. It contained over four-hundred ushabtis. Barsanti described them as "d’un beau travail et d’un assez beau bleu tendre" (J.-F. and L. Aubert, Statuettes égyptiennes. Chaoubtis, Ouchebtis, 1974, p.227). For Tjai-ne-hebu’s tomb and his ushabtis in general see G. Janes, Shabtis. A Private View, 2002, pp. 210-214 (the present ushabti is recorded on p. 212, note 31); also see E. Bresciani et al., La Tomba di Ciennehebu, Capo della Flotta del Re, 1977.
