Bust of Ramesses II, from Tanis. Egyptian Museum, Cairo. (granite) This bust of Ramesses II closely resembles a statue of Ramesses in the Turin Egyptian Museum, Italy. However, the Cairo piece wears a long wig, rather than the blue crown worn by the Turin statue. A uraeus can be seen at the king’s forehead, and he is shown with a young face, and a slight smile. His nose is missing. Below, he wears a collar composed of five rows of beads, and a tight pleated robe.
