Shrine 30 featured intact architectural elements, such as the doorway with its lintel, door jamb, threshold, interior walls and ceiling.
At the back of the shrine, within a niche, the archaeologists found two life-size statues.
"They show a male and a female seated on a couch, positioned slightly towards each other in a private embrace," Nilsson said.
The male figure, and owner of the shrine, is portrayed with enlarged and protruding ears, large nose and lips, and sunken eyes. His arms are crossed over his chest, in the so-called Osirian position, and he wears a shoulder-length hair wig.
Portrayed with equally pronounced facial features, the female statue embraces the male, one arm placed on the male's shoulder, and the other hand in front of her chest.
"We have no clues so far about the identity of this couple. Unfortunately there is no information preserved within the hieroglyphic text," Nilsson told Discovery News.
Nilsson's team also found that the other monument, known as Shrine 31, had retained all its original architectural details, including its threshold, floor, door jambs and internally dressed walls.
