bust

Bust of colossal statue of a young king
Upper part of a colossal statue in the style of the late Ptolemaic Period. The Ptolemies presented themselves as the rulers of Egypt with sculpture decked in pharaonic regalia. The locks of hair, peeping out from under the royal head-dress or Nemes, mirror the taste of the period. In this case the facial characteristics and the lock at the side clearly point to a young age. This is probably a prince depicted as Horus the child (Harpocrates).
