Statue of a Prince Bearing the Cartouche of King Osorkon II
This statue belonged to a son of King Osorkon II and Queen Karama who is shown in relief on the statue's left side. However, the statue was probably an earlier work usurped by the prince to serve his own religious purposes. Its face and wig are New Kingdom in style, an inscription on the base has been chiseled away, and the figure of Osiris was recut from a larger image.
