Colossal Statue of Ramesses II as a Boy, with a Falcon


JE 64735 Cairo Antiquity Museum


Material: Grey Granite and Limestone (falcon's beak)
Size: Height: 231 cm
Location: Tanis
Excavation: P. Montet's Excavations of 1934
Period: 19th Dynasty, reign of Ramesses II (1290-1224 BC)

This statue was found in the ruins of a mud brick building at Tanis, which was part of a cluster of structures not far from the enclosure wall of the Great Temple of Amun. This was probably a part of a workshop, for the beak was found in an adjacent room. It was probably in the workshop for repair, which was never completed.
