EGYPTIAN LIMESTONE BUST OF A MAN (after the antique)

$3,800.00

EGYPTIAN LIMESTONE BUST OF A MAN (after the antique probably early 20th century.) 

The style is Ramesside or 19th to 20th Dynasty (around 1200-1000BC). 

Upper part of a white limestone statue of a male standing figure, shown wearing the curled lappet-wig. the dorsal pillar is inscribed with hieroglyphs

52 cm high with stand 42 cm x 26 cm x 16 cm

 

Statues such as this can come from either tomb or temple contexts, and it is rarely possible to decide between these two possibilities.

Private statues in hard stone are perhaps more likely to come from temples and those in limestone from tombs, but there are exceptions in both cases. The inscription on this statue is perhaps more suited to a funerary context. If that is so, the statue was probably placed in the offering chapel where it, and thereby the owner, could participate in the rituals which took place there.
