Description This fragment from a statue that showed its owner kneeling before his god reflects classic elements of Egyptian sculpture. It was created at a time when Egypt was also influenced by Nubian and Libyan culture, though, as can be seen in the heavy folds of flesh around the mouth and the shape and placement of the eyes.
