King Mycerinus
Between Two Goddesses


this is the owner of the middle-sized pyramid at giza, flanked by 2 goddesses, one local and one regional. their height and how far each figure's left leg is advanced depends on their respective heirarchy.

here classical egyptian art, as in the precedng work, "king cephren", is ruled by idealism, especially those created for royalty. each of the figures are beautiful, enticing and imposing in its space: a style to be heavily borrowed from by the mesopotamians, greeks and eventually the romans.

gray-green schist
height about 37"
c. 2530 b.c.
