Hemiunu (fl. 2570 BC) is believed to be the architect of the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt. He was the son of Nefermaat, a relative of Khufu, the Old Kingdom pharaoh whose pyramid it is. Archaeologists have found mentions of Hemiunu with titles roughly translated as Master of works and Vizier. In the latter office he succeeded Kanefer and his father Nefermaat. His tomb lies close to Khufu's pyramid, and contains reliefs of his image. Some stones of his mastaba are marked with dates referring to Khufu's reign. His statue can be found at the Pelizaeus Museum, Hildesheim, Germany. This statue is scheduled to be loaned for the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum in 2011.
