Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work exhibited at the Louvre.
These bookends made of resin are inspired by an egyptian sculpture belonging to the cubic type that appeared during the Middle Empire.
The volume of the first examples was highly simplified, giving really the impression of a cube. Over time, however, the shape of the body and arms became more apparent, as in this statue.
A cartouche, inscribed with the name of Ramses, is engraved on his left arm. Most of the hieroglyphics engraved on the pillar and base have been erased. This personage was called Hor, and among his functions, he seems to have been a Priest and Intendant of Ptah.
