Seated alabaster statue of Queen Cnh-n.s�-Mry-rc holding in her lap a small figure of King Nfr-k3-rc (Pepy II) on simple block throne; inscription in one column and one row at Queen�s feet, one column at King�s feet. Condition: Practically perfect. Very slight chips, apparently recent, along right edge of inscription at Queen�s feet; left arm of Queen apparently broken off in antiquity and reassembled, considerably weathered, large fragment missing from arm to wrist. Opening in the forehead of Queen presumably for head of the Vulture headdress which is missing. Various brown deposits on back of throne and organic deposits in the hieroglyphs and in details of bodies. Crack runs almost midway through the headdress and face of Queen probably a natural cleavage in the stone. Two drill marks behind Queen�s feet.
