Among the statues found in the tomb of the noble, Urirni, was a statue of the funerary priest, Kaemked.

The solemn image depicts him kneeling, with his hands crossed in a relaxed pose and praying to his god, leaving all life concerns behind.

The eyes of the statue are inlaid with obsidian for the pupil and quartz for the white of the eyes.
