King Amenhotep III carried out a number of large-scale architectural and sculptural programs during his long reign (1388-1348 BC). Ramesses II, a king of the succeeding 19th Dynasty, much admired his predecessor’s accomplishments and set out to copy them. At times, he simply usurped or recarved Amenhotep III’s works, as in the case of this statue.
