    About

    Produced by the Museum photographer Kevin Lovelock, this image shows The Younger Memnon - an ancient Egyptian statue dated to the 19th Dynasty. Made from red granite, the statue was discovered in Ramesseum, upper Egypt. It represents the pharaoh Ramesses II (one of a pair placed before the door of the Ramesseum) wearing a nemes head-cloth and a circlet of uraei (about half now lost). The sculptor has exploited the bichrome nature of the stone to emphasise the division between the body and face. The dorsal pillar is inscribed with vertical registers of hieroglyphs - giving the name and titles of the king and part of a dedication to the god Amun- Ra. In 1817 it was noted that there were traces of colour upon the statue and it may have, therefore, been painted red in antiquity. This art print forms part of a specially curated range by the photographers of the British Museum.
