From the Museum
This statue represents a king, sitting on a throne covered in inscriptions in the name of Ramesses II. The original identity of this work was the subject of much heated debate: traces of modifications to the crown, face, torso, and throne were long thought to indicate that the king had re-used an older work. It is almost certain, however, that these changes resulted from the monument being moved to another site during the course of the great pharaoh's sixty-seven-year reign.
This statue represents a figure in traditional pharaonic pose: seated on a cubic throne, his hands flat on his thighs, wearing the nemes headdress with a (broken) cobra, and a false beard. The names and titles of Ramesses II are inscribed on the belt buckle, and on the back and sides of the throne. The surface of the stone shows traces of modifications to the crown, face, neck, and part of the torso and throne. Some specialists therefore accused Ramesses II of having re-used the work of one of his predecessors, namely Amenophis III.
