Description

Head from statuette. The head depicts a king wearing the nemes head scarf, with uraeus at the front. The depth of the head and the fact that the bunched tail of the nemes seems to extend backward may indicate that this was originally the head of a small sphinx statue. The face is wide. The proper left ear is higher on the head than the right.
