One of the most elegantly sculptured women figures from ancient Egypt, wearing a transparent garment of fine, pleated linen and a wig with a band of petals with a blooming lotus flower in the center. In her left hand she holds a menat necklace, which is associated with the goddess Hathor. On the back in Hieroglyphs the titles of her husband General Nakhtmin are engraved as it was originally a statue of the couple.
