History Egyptian King Menkaura Mycerinus & queen Statue Sculpture 16" www.Neo-Mfg.com home decor Museum reproduction
Size: 16" tall x 6.125" wide x 6.25" deep
Mold made from an imprint of the original work exhibited at the Boston Museum fine arts.
The base of the statue which is usually inscribed with the names and titles of the subject represented, was left unfinished and never received the final polish of most of the rest of the statue.
Because it was found in Menkaura’s Valley Temple and because it resembles other statues from the same findspot bearing his name, there is no doubt that the male figure is King Menkaura.
Reisner suggested that the woman was Queen Khamerernebty II, the only of Menkaura’s queens known by name. She, however, had only a mastaba tomb, while two unidentified queens of Menkaura had small pyramids.
Others have suggested that she represents the goddess Hathor, although she exhibits no divine attributes.
