<p>This representation of the great sovereign of ancient Egypt features the king as a child with a bare torso. He holds his finger to his mouth in imitation of the young god Horus. <br /><br />On the reverse, the god Ptah is shown in a shallow naos - an opening at eye level. He is called the 'Governor of Cosmic Balance', and   'Sovereign of the Two Lands'. This god from Memphis was venerated by one of Ramesses' viziers whose name and head have disappeared, but it is possible to identify the dress as the typical rigid robe of his office.</p>

A resin plaque representing a young Ramesses II, pharaoh of ancient Egypt.

Later to be known as Ramesses the Great, this relief shows the famed sovereign as a child. The young Ramesses II (1303-1213 BC) is heavily ornamented, and is shown seated with a finger to his mouth in imitation of the god Horus. The reverse side of the plaque shows the god Ptah, a favourite of Ramesses, being honoured by a vizier, possibly the man who commissioned the plaque as a dedication to the pharaoh.

The original relief is currently housed in the Musée du Louvre in Paris, France.

A majestic ornament worthy of royalty.
