Information about "Sennefer and Senay"
Sennefer was a mayor of Thebes in the second half of the 18th dynasty. He wears the massive gold necklace of honour presented to him by the king as well as the heart shaped amulet, insignia of his office. This statue shows Sennefer as a middle-aged man with sagging a breast and rolls of fat on his torso as an expression of well-being and prosperity. Senay, his wife, who held the title " royal nurse " is seated next to her husband while one of their daughters, Mut-Nofret, is represented standing between their legs. Note here the serenity of their faces and the love that unites them, expressed by a tender embrace.
All entirely true.

I think that you will see right away what aesthetic mastery the Egyptians achieved!
They simply did not produce UGLY THINGS.
This is one of the very few Egyptian works of art ever to be signed by its artists, Amenmes and Djed-Khonsu, whose names can be read in the vertical inscription on the left hand side of the seat.
