High-gloss painted limestone statue, inscribed with hieroglyphs and cartouches. (atypical scribe statue, reflecting his high standing)

The Ancient Egyptian artisan Ramose lived in Deir el-Medina on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes, during the reigns of Ramesses II.[1] He was buried in a tomb in the village necropolis.

Ramose created a total of three tombs for himself in the Theban Necropolis, TT7, TT212 and TT250.[2]

His titles included Scribe in the Place of Truth, meaning that he worked on the excavation and decoration of nearby royal tombs.
