Statue of Seti II

c.1215 BC

19th Dynasty - New Kingdom

Sety II: seated on a throne, holding on his knees a shrine surmounted by a ram’s head, emblem of the god Amun-Ra. Despite damage on the face of the ram and the head of the uraeus, this is one of the most complete sculptures from ancient Egypt. The king wears a shoulder-length wig with longer strands in front and a uraeus on the forehead. The pleated kilt is held by a large belt bearing a rhomboid decoration, from the back of which emerges a piece of pleated material. An animal tail, hanging between the legs and sandals, completes the royal attire. The narrow throne with low back is equipped, exceptionally, with a cushion, on which the king sits.
