Plaster cast of a statue base
Plaster cast of the base of the statue of Djedhor-the-Saviour, a priest in charge of Horus the Falcon at Athribis. The original is in the Cairo Museum (JE 46341). This copy was made at the Cairo Museum in 1933. The statue belonging to this plaster cast base is in the Petrie Museum in London. A second statue for Djedhor is in the Chicago Oriental Museum (OI 10589). Djedhor was deified whilst alive and may have been the first priest to use bitumen.
