Those Who Must Be Kept

Taken in the Egyptian museum in Cairo 10 or 12 years ago, these are the statues of Rahotep and Nofret, royalty from the 4th dynasty of Egypt’s old kingdom. These statues date to around 2620 BC. They have always reminded me of “Those Who Must Be Kept,” the King and Queen of all vampires from the Anne Rice novels.
