Kneeling King Offering Wine


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description In ancient Egypt, it was the king's duty to present offerings to the gods. This figure of a kneeling king holds out his arms to present two small vessels. These small, round vessels were designed to hold wine, the offering presented here. This figure was once part of a larger statue group in which the king would have been positioned facing an image of a deity, which is now lost.
