This monumental head depicts Amenhotep III, the New Kingdom Pharoah who ruled Egypt for almost 40 years, probably from around 1390 to around 1352 BC. He was the ninth member of the eighteenth recorded dynasty of Egyptian rulers and reigned over an empire that extended from Syria to the Sudan during a time of peace. Among his achievements was the commissioning of more than a thousand portrait statues of himself, many of these on a colossal scale.
