This has lost quite a lot of resolution in conversion to .jpg, it is an offering stela from the village of the craftsmen at Deir el Medina



The fella with the hair is the person who made/comissioned the stela, his name was Iay. The bald chappie behind him isn't named. He may well be Iay's son.
The hawk headed deity with the fancy collar is Khons, son of Amun and Mut and together they make up the Theban Triad.

Being me, I altered it (well, I did make it) and this will be on the front of my Christmas cards this year.
