Upper Part of a Statue of a Man


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Almost certainly a fragment of a life-size temple statue showing its owner reverently kneeling before his god, this figure is quite rare, perhaps even unique. The eyes and eyebrows were probably once inlaid with other materials, enhancing the liveliness of the facial features. The shaved head may indicate the owner's status as a cleric or high official.
