He wears a wig and has a very unique appearance with a brilliant blue glaze coating this remarkable piece. Pictures dont do this one justice as it has a very lovely appearance and style.

From Yahoo Ancientartifacts Group:

M: Style is correct, but the glazing coat... definitely, that's not
faience. You can find thousands of fake amulets and shabtis with the
same *faience* in Luxor.
