This is a solid hand cast resin miniature of the famous Younger Memnon (Ramesses II) statue as seen in the British Museum and made famous by Shelley’s poem Ozymandias.
The statue is depicted half buried in the sand awaiting excavation. In later life the real statue had a small hole made in its chest but this model is made without the hole. You can add it if you wish! The Hieroglyphics on the back of the statue are accurate.
It is a 28mm scale model and its dimensions are 65mm x 48mm x 36mm
As this is hand cast resin, there may be some cleaning and preparation work may be needed to the model before painting. eg removal of mould lines, filling in of bite marks, boil removal, sanding etc
