This beautifully carved replica shows a highly ranking officer: either a wellborn lord or a common Egyptian gifted with intelligence and culture.

Like his wife, he wears a long linen robe with pleats. Their costumes allow one to date the original to the end of the 14th century B.C.

This replica refers to an entire social image: the woman is equal to her husband, who is seated to the right of his wife and they affectionately hold each other by the waist. They are thus represented in a moment of conscious peacefulness, as if contemplating the eternity before which they present themselves.

The original was most likely displayed in the chapel of the couple's tomb.
