FIGURINE/STATUETTE



STATUETTE
This group of two seated males in sandstone comes from the excavations of W. F. Petrie at Serabit el-Khadim. It depicts the "director of sealed matters" Nebaaour and the "chamberlain of Djedbaou" Khentykhety. The piece belongs to the category of private statues which were placed in the sanctuary of Hathor so that the owners may benefit from the divine kindness.
