Limestone ancestor bust
These busts were used to contact the ancestors in the privacy of the private home. These statues were placed in niches inside the home and offerings could be made there to the ancestors. Because these ancestors were already in the afterlife, they could work on behalf of an individual who gave offerings. However, an upset ancestor could also make a decendent sick or give him or her bad fortune. 
Egyptian, New Kingdom, 19th dynasty, 1320 - 1237 BC. 
Probably from Upper Egypt, Thebes, Deir el Medina.
