It Is Assumed That the People Are All Related but the Exact Relationships Are Uncertain Due to the Incomplete State of the Inscription. All Four Figures Have Long Arms and Rather Wide Feet. They All Share the Same Idealized Facial Features Including Heavy Hooded Eyes and Mouths That Droop Down at the Corners. the Brow Lines Are Quite Straight and the Foreheads Are Broad. These Features Echo the Severity Seen in Royal Portraiture of the Time. the Male Figure Wears a Long Wrapped Garment Which Is Tied at His Waist. He Stands with His Left Foot Forward and His Arms Hang Straight with Both Hands Flat Upon the Fronts of His Thighs. His Striated Wig Pushes His Large Ears Forward. Both Women Stand with Their Feet Together and Their Hands Rest Flat Against the Sides of Their Thighs. They Wear Ankle Length Sheath Gowns Cut Below the Breasts with Two Wide Shoulder Straps. Their Tripartite Wigs Are Plaited and Gathered at the Back of the Head. the Wig Lappets Fall Over the Shoulders and Curl Outward at the Ends in Imitation of the Wig Worn by the Goddess Hathor. the Statue Groups Representing Families, in Various Combinations or Sequences, Were a Common Theme in Ancient Egyptian Art. Whereas in Old Kingdom Statues the Sizes of the Individuals Signaled Their Relative Importance and Their Relationship, Middle Kingdom Statue Groups Are Characterized by More Naturalistic Depictions.
