Statue of a king

Statue of a king
The statue represents a striding king, the left leg is put forward. The arms hang down beside the body, the hands hold the remains of some object, perhaps a staff. The statue has a back pillar. The stone between the legs has not been removed and is connected with the lower part of the back pillar. The king is shown in a rather stiff, conventional attitude. He wears only a short kilt with a belt and the nemes-head cloth with the uraeus. The various parts of t...he body are well-proportioned, in contrast with the head which is rather heavy and lacks individuality. The rendering of the body and the face has been influenced by Graeco-Roman examples, which is typical of the Ptolemaic Period.
