Colossal statue that portrays Queen Tuya, an important historical figure, wife of the Pharoah Seti I (1294-1279 BC) and venerated mother of his successor, Ramses II (1279-1213 BC).

W.M. Flinders Petrie, A History of Egypt - Part One, (1896), pp. 26-27:

"The only queen known in this reign is Tuaa, of whom many figures exist as the mother of Ramessu II. The best statue is in the Vatican; but probably the best portrait is that from Tanis. The titles of Tuaa name her as the heiress, divine wife, and royal mother.

One daughter, Hent-ma-ra, appears on the side of Tuaa's statue in the Vatican".
