From info card:

"As treasurer, privy councillor, and overseer of scribal equipment, Nofer's administrative authority was of the highest level. Nothing is known about his wife; only traces of her name (Wen-ankhes) are preserved on the tomb walls. The couple are intended to be standing side by side, although Egyptian artistic convention places them one behind the other for maximum visibility. The lower parts of the figures may still be seen on the south wall of Nofer's tomb chapel. The complete figures are shown in the reconstruction drawing [below]":
