These two wooden Ka statues represent the brothers Nebreshy and Amenhotep. They both have shaved heads and they wear elaborately pleated linen kilts. The statue bases are inscribed in hieroglyphs with a ritual funerary formula invoking Osiris, the god of the Underworld, from the parents of the two brothers.
