This head once had inlaid beardstraps and a false beard. This proves that it must have been part of a statuette of a king or a god.

production_note
'during the reign of Amenophis III or Thutmosis IV-Horemheb'; the holes where a false beard with beardstrap would have been attached in a different material, indicate that this is the head of a king or possibly a god.
