The black volcanic basalt stone imparts a sleek appearance to this revered temple statue.
This bust of Ankh-Hor comprises the top portion of a temple statue. From the position of the arms, it is evident that it originally belonged to a striding figure holding a naos, or shrine, containing the image of a deity. His high-waisted wraparound robe, fashionable during the Persian period (Dynasty 27) when this figure was carved, would have reached to his ankles.
