coffin of Tawosretempernesut

The anthropoid coffin of Tawosretempernesut, a singer of the Theban god Amun, is an excellent example of such products from the 21st Dynasty. It is richly decorated with scenes and texts from several different funerary collections of the New Kingdom, for example, the famous scene of 'weighing the heart' associated with chapter 125 of the 'Book of the Dead'. The other scenes are limited to depictions of the deceased in adoration before deities and "demons" of the afterlife

The statue is a family group with the sitting male and standing female figure characteristic of the Old Kingdom art. The owner sits on a cubical block unseparated from the back "wall" of the composition. He wears a short kilt and a wig covering his ears and almost reaching his shoulders; natural locks are shown on the forehead dropped from under the wig. His clenched right fist resting horizontally on his lap holds an involute kerchief; the left hand is open. His wife stands to the left of the owner embracing his shoulders with her right arm; the left arm is lowered. She wears a tightly fitting dress reaching mid-shin and two bangles on each ankle. The head and left shoulder of the female figure are lost, but originally it was as high as the sitting man.
The quality of work is not low, but the master was rather careless. The female figure is slanted outwards as if ready to fall, the neck of the man is too thick in profile, while the shape of the wig with a flat rear part and the parting turning into a shallow depression at the crown is abnormal. On the base, in front of the feet of the woman, the title and the name of the owner and the name of his wife are incised in two columns of hieroglyphs.
