Wooden Ptah-Soker-Osiris mummiform figure wearing curled ram horns, sun-disc and plumes. The body is painted black with a wig of dark green, and the details, such as a broad collar, are painted in black, blue, red and green on a yellow ground. A vertical column of hieroglyphic text on the front and back gives the name of the deceased, Nesshutefnut. The figure is pegged into a rectangular base of painted wood, facing a model coffin which is also pegged into the base. On the sides of the coffin are tiny painted figures protective deities including the goddesses Isis and Nephthys. Originally there was a figure of a jackal pegged to the lid of the model coffin but this is now missing. The model coffin is hollow and possibly intended to contain papyrus text or a small fragment of the body of the deceased. Between the coffin and the foot of the standing figure the name, parentage and titles of the deceased, Nesshutefnut (also called Ruru).
The mummy and coffin of Nesshutefnut (also known as Ruru) prophet of Khonsu, prophet of Horus, son of Iyhor and Teni, were found at Hissayeh in Upper Egypt during excavations undertaken there by Professor John Garstang and Harold Jones in February/March 1905. In the same tomb were a painted wooden stele, a canopic chest and a Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure. An unpublished photograph shows the relative position of the contents of the rock-cut tomb when it was opened. The coffin was lying against the side wall with the Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure close to the right of the head. Between the Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure and the canopic chest was the stela.
