The ba is an aspect of a person's non-physical being. After death, the ba was able to travel out from the tomb, but it had to periodically return to the tomb and be reunited with the mummy. The ba was usually represented as a bird with a human head, and sometimes with human arms.
Ba bird statuettes are among those that might accompany a burial in the Late and Ptolemaic Periods.
