We often get clues about a person by what they are wearing or holding in an artwork. This statue gives us a couple of clues:
The headdress he wears is called a "nemes ". It is a wig cover that was worn by Egyptian royalty.
He holds a "mace." These ornamental clubs were symbols of authority. So, we have a pretty good idea that this is a representation of a pharaoh.
