Statuette of Huwebenef

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 114

Like other early New Kingdom statues, Huwebenef has a slender body, delicate features, and unusually large eyes. The statuette has a separate wooden base with a funerary inscription by Huwebenef's father, Djehuty. The statuettes of the child Amenemhab (26.7.1413a, b) and Huwebenef were found inside the coffin of a woman presumed to have been their mother.
