centuriespast:

Heroic seated statue of Ramesses II. Enthroned king has traces of red on flesh and wears blue / yellow striped Nemes headddress. Deep cut inscriptions on the throne and base bear the names and titles of Ramesses II: on the base he is said to be beloved of Herishef; perhaps usurped by Ramesses II from an earlier statue of the Middle Kingdom. Throne bears traces of ancient carving error. The carver put signs the wrong way round on the left side of the throne and covered his mistake with plaster filling; cut 2 new signs over it facing in the correct direction. Plaster was mistakenly picked out once it was on display at museum, exposing error.
