Rare but not unique ...

Karol Myśliwiec : Une Statue-Groupe en Haut-Relief de Ramsès IV. - In: The Heritage of Ancient Egypt - Studies in Honour of Erik Iversen. - Copenhagen : Carsten Niebuhr Institute of Ancient Near East Studies, University of Copenhagen / Museum Tusculanum Press, 1992. - pp. 89 - 100, 4 figs [ills] :
Quote:
Publication of a limestone statue of Ramses IV, found in a New Kingdom tomb at Tell el-Faraun (ancient Imet, capital of the 19th Lower Egyptian nome) and at present in the Orabi Museum at Zagazig. (reg. no. 1399). It represents a god behind the king, both walking with the left leg forward. The god has actually three legs, two in high relief at the right side, the third on the left. After giving the inscription in transcription and translation, the author hesitantly (the upper part is missing) determines the god represented as Atum. The upper part of the king being equally absent, the author investigates the evidence for the role of the king. The group is possibly connected with the confirmation of the royal power, with a slight accent on the sacerdotal aspect. Possibly the statue originally came from a temple or palace in Pi-Ramesse. The piece has not only a unique place among the statuary of the king, it is also hardly parallelled in the wider context of statuary types. (OEB 27303 [AEB 1992.0718] - L.Z.)
