Mut and Penshenabu
The goddess Mut, whose name means “mother,” was traditionally represented in the image of a woman with a headdress in the shape of a vulture, surmounted by the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt. The dedicant Penshenabu is portrayed in the act of offering an altar surmounted by a ram’s head to the god Amon-Ra. On his right shoulder he has a tattooed image of the god Amon, while on his left shoulder is the deified Queen Ahmose-Nefertari, patron of Deirel-Medina. The inscription at the base of the statue places Penshenabu during the reign of Ramesses II (1279-1213 B.C.).
Both artifacts were completely cleaned and the decaying painted layers were restored.
