    The head of a pharaoh is a portrait made of stone and copper during the 5th and 6th dynasty (old kingdom). The portrait originated in Egypt (2675-2139 B.C.E). The head of the pharaoh, according to Freer and Sackler Gallery (current location), is believed to have been part of a full body statue because of the missing piece of the neck. The tall crown with the round top indicates that the pharaoh ruled over southern Egypt. There are a couple of unattractive things that I do not like. I know it is traditional, but I find the crown exaggerating. It looks long and heavy with a round top. The eyes look too big, with wings in the corner; I am assuming it is a form of makeup. The eyebrows are too long and sort of connected to the ears. This makes…

    This work, from Ancient Egypt, was carved from red granite circa 1400 B.C.E. The most fascinating part of this work of art, for me, was the face. Of the statues from Ancient Egypt I have seen, the faces are usually solemn and serene. In this statue of Amenhotep II, the face appears almost whimsical and amused. Though this is a somewhat trivial point, this aspect of the work of art is, in my opinion, what makes the work so different. The character depicted in the face of Amenhotep II shows a…

If we didn’t have these pharaohs the world would be a much different place now because Egypt might not have been what it is…
