Ancient Egyptian cube block statue of Horemtabat, 660 BC, 25th Dynasty. Kunsthistorisches Muesum Vienna inv AS 9639. Granire height 32 cm width 15.8 cm. The statue type is known as cubic stool figure - also called cube stool - offers the advantage that the entire surface can be covered with inscriptions. The person represented is a "divine father", a high priestly rank, called Har-kheb, whose father was the prophet of Amun in Karnak Hor, and whose mother was the temple musician of Amun Isis-reshuti [Esershôt]. The name Har-kheb is a more or less phonetic rendering of Hor-em-akhbit, "Horus is in Khemmis". On the front of the statue is a version of the traditional "appeal to passers-by".
