Description The care-worn facial features first seen on sculptures of King Sesostris III appear again in the royal sculpture of some of his successors. The faces on statues commissioned by and for private individuals share many of the conventions applied to the monarchs. Unlike some royal portraits, however, this official's mouth betrays a slight smile, lending it an air of dignified confidence.
Provenance Dikran Kelekian, New York and Paris; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1924, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
