Seated statue of King Neferefre

By Jacqueline Engel

This statue was found broken in several fragments in 1984-85 among the remains of the pyramid temple of the king at Abusir.

The king is represented sitting on a throne and wearing a short wig, but the uraeus cobra, most likely crafted in a different material, is missing.

The falcon-god Horus spreads his wings in a protective gesture behind the king’s head.

5th Dynasty (King Neferefre), about 2431-2420 BC, Abusir, (pyramid complex of King Neferefre, mortuary temple),

limestone, pigment.
