Fragmentary statuette of priest Ka-em-hotep

Fragmentary statuette of priest  Ka-em-hotep

Fragment of a statuette of valuable  workmanship representing a standing insignia carrier; the personage is wearing a long pleated skirt and grips the sides carrying insignia rods. From the inscription in front one reads only the identification as a priest sem, Ka-em-hotep; on the back pillar one reads "its beauty in the sublime chapel, supporter of his mother, the priest sem"; on the left side it turns out that the statuette was dedicated to the goddess by the daughter of the priest, "his daughter, whom he loves, Isinofret.”
