Looked her up and this is the image I received, however I feel as if it is a latter statue of another queen.

Niethotep wife of Narmer, mother of Hor-aha?

From the same "source", a picture of "Pharaoh Snefru" ...

Does that answer your question?

Not very likely: this statue was done in the 18th Dynasty style, with the double-lidded eye, representative of the reign of Amenhotep III. Not an Old Kingdom/predynastic piece at all.

Possibly a goddess of some sort? Hard to tell from this picture alone.
