Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This sculpture of a king wears a uraeus and a wig. He is seated on a chair with a low back. His right hand is clenched on his knee, and his left is flat on his knee. He wears a short skirt. The piece is broken at the waist and has been formerly repaired. This piece is probably a forgery made by an Italian.
