Description
In spite of the childlike gesture this youthful figure makes with his finger, we are immediately aware that we are in the presence of a god. Horus/Harpocrates is the personification of the Pharaoh on earth, and the elaborate ceremonial crown this child wears immediately confirms his lofty royal rank. We are simultaneously confronted with something touchingly human and yet recognizably divine. This splendid stature seems to reach to the very heart of the ancient Egyptian culture. - (FZ.017)
