queen Hetepheres passing her left arm lovingly behind the neck of her daughter, Meresankh

This statue, in painted limestone, was probably in the serdab which is on the south side of the courtyard. It represents queen Hetepheres passing her left arm lovingly behind the neck of her daughter, Meresankh. Their identification is written on the base between the two pairs of feet.
• Inscription of Hetepheres: "The beholder of Horus and Seth, the consort of he who is beloved of the Two Mistresses".
• Inscription of Meresankh: "His daughter, the king's wife, whom he loves".
Only these inscriptions identify the two women as queens. The wig and dress of Hetepheres doesn't have anything specifically royal. Meresankh doesn't wear a wig.
