Catalogue Description:
Plaster cast of a head of a king, probably used as a sculptor’s model. Condition: Nose chipped, uraeus chipped, surface discolored, otherwise excellent. Routine work of the period. The entire back is curved as is natural with any casting from a mould. The right ear and nose appear to have been reworked after casting but the left ear remains larger and untouched.
