Lot Essay

The smoothed back and plaque-like thickness of this piece indicate that it belongs to a category of trial pieces showing the efforts of an apprentice sculptor. To the left of the head of the young male, two parallel lines of curls have been attempted by the sculptor. The slanted eye and features are indicative of the reign of Amenhotep III or slightly thereafter.
