The standing statue of the official Nefershemem comes from his mastaba tomb at the site of El-Kab. The inscription on the statue base reads: The King’s acquaintance, god’s servant priest, Nefershemem. Nefershemem’s tomb was one of a group of Old Kingdom mastabas located in a cemetery beside the ancient town site of Nekheb (El-Kab). The statue probably originally stood inside a serdab (an enclosed statue-shrine) in the mastaba of Nefershemem. The statue’s head was never found.
