Yuny and His Wife, Renenutet
ca. 1290?1270 B.C.E.; early Dynasty 19; late reign of Sety I?early reign of Ramesses II; New Kingdom
Egyptian; Asyut
Limestone; H. 34 in. (86.4 cm)

These figures represent Yuny seated next to his wife Renenutet. Yuny, who lived in the city of Asyut, was a chief royal scribe and holder of many other offices, perhaps including that of physician. Additional inscriptions on the base of the statue further elaborate Yuny’s responsibilities. On the center fold of Yuny’s pleated skirt is an inscription that reads: "May everything that comes forth upon the offering table of [the god] . . . and all pure food that comes forth from the Great Enclosure [the temple complex at Heliopolis] be for the chief scribe, royal scribe of letters, Yuny, justified."

Renenutet affectionately places her right arm around her husband’s shoulders. On the back of the statue she is described as a chantress, or temple-ritual singer, of Amun-Re. In her left hand, she holds by its metal counterweight a heavy bead necklace called a menat. Menat necklaces were ritual implements that were held in the hands and shaken like cymbals, especially in the service of the goddess Hathor.

Appropriate to their high secular and religious positions, Yuny and Renenutet wear the elaborate wigs and fine linen attire fashionable in their time. Renenutet is adorned with a lotus fillet and a necklace called a broad collar. The beads are in the shape of nefer hieroglyphs (meaning "good" or "beautiful"), offering vases, and floral petals. Traces of black remain on the wigs. The couple sit together on a bench with elegantly carved lion-paw feet.

On the back of the chair in both sunk and raised relief are two scenes illustrating the ancient Egyptian ideal of affection and remembrance among family generations. In the upper register, Yuny and Renenutet receive offerings from their son; in the lower, Renenutet offers food and drink to her parents.

Yuny y su esposa, Renenutet ca. 1290 1270 aC
Estas figuras representan a Yuny sentado al lado de su esposa Renenutet. Yuny, quien vivió en la ciudad de Asiut, fue jefe real, escribano y encargado de muchos otros oficios, quizá incluido el de médico. Inscripciones adicionales sobre la base de la estatua más tarde enumeran las responsabilidades de Yuny. En el doblez central de la falda de Yuny hay una inscripción que dice: “Que todo lo que se ponga ante la ofrenda en la mesa de (el dios)… y todo alimento puro que se presente desde el Gran Recinto (el complejo sagrado de Heliopolis) sea a para justificar al jefe escribano, real escribano de cartas, Yuny.”
Renenutet cariñosamente posa su brazo derecho sobre los hombros de su esposo. Atrás de la estatua ella es descrita como cantante ritual del templo de Amón-Re. En su mano izquierda, sostiene por su contrapeso metálico un pesado collar de cuentas llamado menat. El menat eran implemento rituale que se sostenía en las manos y se tañía como un címbalo , especialmente en los servicios de la diosa Hathor.
Acorde a su alta posición secular y religiosa, Yuny y Renenutet visten las elaboradas pelucas y finos atuendos de lino de moda en su tiempo. Renenutet es adornada con una faja de loto y un collar llamado collar principal. Las cuentas tienen forma de jeroglíficos nefer (que significa “belleza”), ofreciendo vasos y pétalos de flores. Quedan vestigios de color negro en la peluca. La pareja se sienta junta sobre la banca de patas de león.
En la parte posterior de la silla en alto y bajo relieve hay dos escenas que ilustran el antiguo ideal egipcio de afecto y recuerdo entre las familias por generaciones. En el registro superior, Yuny y Renenutet reciben ofrendas de sus hijos, en el inferior, Renutet ofrece comida y bebida a sus padres.
