From the tomb of Huya an inscritpion showing Auta at work within in his studio putting the finishing touches to a statue of the princess Beketaten. Auta's head is shown too for his body - it is thought to show his real likeness. One student leans forward to study his master's work - to exclaim, 'Why she's alive!'
