Name: BUST of EGYPTIAN PHARAOH (simulated black granite) Time: c. 500 - 200 BC Location: Egypt
BACKGROUND This beautiful bust of an Egyptian Pharaoh is a testimony to the skill and artistry of an ancient sculpture. Carved from scarce red granite, this bust was probably placed in a tomb of a high functionary to give the deceased greater stature in the afterlife. The the royal head cloth, or nemes, surmounted by the royal cobra, uraeus, identifies this as a Pharaoh. The stone bridge under the chin was originally used to support a false beard. The calm, regal features remind us that he was looked on as a god. Even in the Ptolemaic era Pharaohs still retained their divine right. Cleopatra was the last of the Ptolemies.
Egyptians believed that close association with even a bust of their god-king would protect them, enhance their position, and make life easier. This exact duplicate of the beautifully carved original serves as an exquisite example of Egyptian art and allows you too to make friends with a Pharaoh - who knows, it couldn't hurt!
CREATING the REPLICA This exact reproduction was molded directly from the original red granite bust using a unique, patent pending technology which exactly duplicates the object without risking direct contact. This guarantees the safety and integrity of the original antiquity while permitting an exact duplicate to be produced. The technique perfectly reproduces the original artifact down to the finest tool marks made by the artist 2300 years ago. Unlike other reproduction techniques, there has been NO modern recarving or reinterpretation of the piece. It is reproduced as it was found.
The original Egyptian sculpture is currently in a private collection and was reproduced by Echoes In Time under exclusive agreement with the owners. Each reproduction is individually handmade and hand finished by artisans in USA with particular attention to authenticity and craftsmanship.
