At the back of Shrine 30, 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.
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 and wears a shoulder length hair wig.
Depicted 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.
