Large Seated Statue of Hatshepsut

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 115

In this statue, Hatshepsut is portrayed as a male pharaoh dressed in the costume of an Egyptian king, although she does not wear the usual false beard. Like all the statues from Hatshepsut's temple, this one was broken into many pieces by her nephew and co-ruler, Thutmose III. Unlike most of the others, the features of her face have also been systematically destroyed. Certain details of the statue were originally painted, and traces of pigment are still visible on the headdress and broad collar.
