Details

Ramses II called "The Great", earned that accolade by doing things on a grand scale with enormous gusto. In an opulent 67-year reign he waged an extravagant war against a coalition of Asian states led by the Hittites, sired more than 100 children, and erected Egypt's biggest and showiest buildings. Among his monuments were two huge temples cut into the cliffs at Abu Simbel. He entered into diplomatic negotiations with Hittites, with whom he signed one of the first recorded treaties in history. He campaigned in Syria and Palestine and raided into the south. Ramses was truly a king of kings.

Specification

Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.

This item is also available in other color finishes - if you like other then the pictured finish, please chose from the pull down menu above. To see pictures of our cast stone finishes please visit our "Cast Stone Sculptures FAQ". There is no extra charge for any other finish you chose.
