Ancient Egypt, 1400 B.C.
The ancient Egyptians were great creators of iconography. They used to represent both sculptures and paintings, looking for the preservation of their image as well as their names.
The sculptural representation was one of the most selected since it was not accessible to the entire population.
This sculptural piece, done in granite stone is very selective since granite is a stone with magical solar connotations. This is why the character represented indicates that was the chosen one.
In regards to the representation, we find that the character is wearing a dense wig topped by an uraeus or royal cobra, which indicates his royal position as a Pharaoh of powerful person.
His face is archaic and sympathetic, with very well preserved traits.

The piece you kindly bought was unusually rejected by the Spanish customs as it is a "weapon". We again asked the Ministry of Culture of Spain for another license with which, in theory, we should have been able to send the package. However, this was rejected again by customs. We called and informed with several transport agencies without success, but we never give up trying to give a good service to a client and answer all messages. At the end you decided to cancel your order before we were able to solve the problem. Of course we understand you are disappointed and we are very sorry for that, but we tried to do our best.
Great piece and great packaging. Thank you very much. A pleasure buying from you.
The seller will ship the item(s) within 3 working days after receiving confirmation of payment.
