Limestone block-statue. At the front of the legs is a representation in the round of Osiris, flanked by relief representations of Isis and Horus. Hieroglyphic inscriptions are present on the back-pillar and on all sides of the base. They identify the owner, Parenu, as a ‘God’s Father (senior priest) of Amun-Ra’ and as a ‘chief of servants of the bedroom of Pharaoh’.
