Statue Head of Apries


Head of a black basalt statue of Apries. The damage is typical of statues of this king and may reflect his forceful deposition by Ahmose II. The blue crown was much favored by 26th Dynasty kings, and the air of benign calm pervading the face is typical of Saite royal sculptures after the time of Psamtek I.
