According to the inscriptions that the statue bears, Priestess Takushet was the daughter of Akanuasa II, the Great Chief of the Libyan tribe Ma, during the Service of Nesi (Pharaoh) Piankhi, 25th Dynasty, Neo New Kingdom (750 BCE). Her name means “the Kushite” and possibly refers to the Ma tribe's blood relation to Kush or marriage to a Kushite. Her office was of priestess “waab” (pure-chaste priestess), which according to the religious hierarchy was the lowest priestly title.
