Though not part of this exhibition, this upper part of a composite statue was also the subject of recent study and technical analysis. The statue depicts a man from the waist up, with a square tenon for attachment to his lower body protruding from his torso. His arms are likewise formed from separate pieces of wood. The man is bald with exquisitely carved facial features. Two vertical creases run across his brow, suggesting this is not an idealized, youthful Egyptian, but rather a mature man of social standing. Black cosmetic lines outline his almond-shaped eyes with pointed inner and outer canthi, while his pupils are likewise picked out in black contrasting with the white of his eyes. His knowing eyes are hooded, with a curved crease above. His naturalistic eyebrows are rendered in black, while beneath his eyes heavy bags accented by furrows on either side of the nose add to his overall worn appearance. His cheeks appear somewhat hollow, and his lips are pursed in a straight line and drilled at the corners. His strong chin is square and well-formed. On the sides of his face, his ears appear overly large, as is common on other statues dating to this period. Contrasting the somewhat aged appearance of his face, the man’s torso is taught and youthful, with a groove underlining his pectoral muscles. The figure’s proper left arm is held down at his side, while his proper right bends at a right angle near his waist. Both hands are clenched in a fist that has been drilled through the center, likely to hold implements which have since been lost. The overall impression of this strikingly human portrait is one of experienced maturity.
