Statue of King Pepi II

By Jacqueline Engel

This statue represents King Pepi II in an unusual pose for a king. He is naked and sitting in a squatting position. His right hand, now missing, was touching his lips, a sign of childhood. The text on the base gives the name of the king inscribed inside the royal cartouche.

6th Dynasty (King Pepi II Neferkare), about 2246-2152 BC, Saqqara (King Pepi II pyramid complex), alabaster, JE 50616
