Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone it has an earthy ochre colouration and rests on polished felt based stand.

Background information

The young prince Ramses is seated with fingers to the mouth. This gesture refers to the child Horus who the Pharaoh was said to be the living image of. The plaited sidelock of youth dates this piece to the very early years of the kings life. His name written in hieroglyphs appears before him within the confines of a cartouche, which encircles the name in an oval.

The reverse of the piece shows the worship of Ptah, the god of arts and creativity. Ptah stands on a small dias and holds a combination sceptre that shows the Djed pillar - (symbol of strength and stability), the 'Was' sceptre (symbol of dominion) and the tip of an Ankh - (symbol of life and fertility).
He is presented with another Djed staff by a priest with arms raised in adoration. A curious decorative addition behind Ptah, is a garland of lotus petals in collar form.

The reverse image suffered some damage in ancient times, at the top right hand corner. This does not detract from the visual appeal of the piece as a whole but adds a level of authenticity to a very attractive and rare, double sided relief.
