Unknown person (Towards 946-720 BC, XXIIth dynasty) Egypt.
Paris, Musée du Louvre
Material(Subject) of the original: bronze
H. 42,5 L. 10 p. 10 cm
This feminine statue is one of the rare witnesses(batons) of the bronze civil statuary and furthermore it is large-sized(tall), what is hardly common(current). Although we know bronzes dating the Average Empire (by 2060-1786 BC), it is only from Low time(period) and especially in the XXIIth dynasty when the art of the bronze-smelters asserted itself as show it the very numerous small-sized(short) statuettes representing divinities.

This woman, up, in the attitude of the walking(step), carries(wears) a short curly wig and a skin-tight dress; his(her,its) forms call back(remind) the art of the Former(Ancient) Empire, what is a characteristic of this period. Body and wig were poured in a single piece according to the technique of the '' lost wax ''; arms, poured to part then assembled, disappeared.
