about "Sennefer and Senay"
Sennefer was a
mayor of Thebes in the second half of the 18th dynasty. He wears the
massive gold necklace of honour presented to him by the king as well
as the heart shaped amulet, insignia of his office. This statue shows
Sennefer as a middle-aged man with sagging a breast and rolls of fat
on his torso as an expression of well-being and prosperity. Senay, his
wife, who held the title " royal nurse " is seated next to
her husband while one of their daughters, Mut-Nofret, is represented
standing between their legs. Note here the serenity of their faces and
the love that unites them, expressed by a tender embrace.
