Hey guys!
I'm writing a paper on the statue of Demedji and Hennutsen, and I'm coming up with a lot of nothing...
The first part of my paper was strictly visual analysis, so I had no problem with that. But not I have to do 6 pages worth of research, and I haven't been able to find anything.
If there are any resources (or just plain knowledge!) that you guys have of this statue, its subjects, or similar statues from the 2400 BC era, please help me out!
Thanks in advance!

Do a Google search for Demedji and Hennutsen. There is a lot of sites. This is taken from one of them:

Thanks, I know about that paragraph of information already. Pretty much every result on the first few pages of a Google search only have that same paragraph of information.
Thanks for searching for me, but I need more than that. I'm looking into what his and his wife's titles actually mean. But if I could get any information on the individuals, that would be amazing.

I don't know what you mean by "what his titles actually meant".
This lists his titles, the functions of which seem to be self-explanatory:

Demedji was Overseer of the regions of foreign bowmen, and Overseer of the King's fortresses.[b] Both titles imply a military function[/b], perhaps in the deserts bordering the Nile delta.[b] He was also Estate Manager of the King, and Overseer of the Herdsmen of Cattle.[/b] His wife, the royal acquaintance Hennutsen, was priestess of the goddesses Hathor and Neith. The statue was dedicated by their son, Ti, an Overseer of Marshes who may also be mentioned in the Abusir Papyri, suggesting that the statue was dedicated in early Dynasty 5.

Those sentences enclosed in (b) should have been in bold. This system fouls up at times...
