Relief of a King

664-525 BC

Limestone

Overall: 28.7 x 17.2 cm (11 5/16 x 6 3/4 in.)

Gift of the John Huntington Art and Polytechnic Trust 1920.1979

Description

A relief of exceptional quality and archaizing style. At the upper left is a section of the cartouche outlined in rope, as is found in archaic work. In many of its details this relief could be traced to the Old Kingdom, but the exceptional delicacy of the diadem, necklace, and false beard establish this as later archaizing work.
