Statuette Of Khenti-Kheti
Sculpture
Middle Kingdom (1987-1640 B.C.)
Basalt

In this very refined statuette, Khenti-Kheti is sitting on a cube-shaped seat with an inscription on the side that defines him as “the chancellor of the king of Lower Egypt, the sole friend, the great superintendent Khenti-Kheti.” We know next to nothing about him, though three other monuments in other museums have been attributed to him, all of them from his chapel/cenotaph in the northern part of Abydos.

Provenance: From Upper Egypt, Abydos
Inventory: Inv. MB 11
