Neferure was Hatshepsut's daughter. Senenmut was a confidant and educator of Neferure in addition to being an architect and government official. He was allowed to erect his own statues in Thebes (reflecting his high status). The girl is wrapped by a large cloak and only her head appears. The cartouches of Hatshepsut are carved on the surface of the statue. Granite. From Western Thebes, Egypt. New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, 1473-1458 BCE. It is on display at the Neues Museum, Berlin, Germany.
