Queen Nedjmet's mummy was found in the royal cache in the tomb of Amenhotep the Second at Deir el-Bahari. The mummy had been given artificial eyes, made of white and black stones. The eyebrows are real hair and she wears a wig.

Her body and parts of her face were colored to give her a more lively appearance. The body was filled with sawdust and her hands are set by her sides.

Between the layers of her wrappings, a heart scarab and four small figurines of the Four Sons of Horus were found. The embalming wound, as well as her eyes, nose, mouth and ears were covered by wax.
