KING TUTMOSE II

 

2010

Richard Edelman

Here I have chosen an obscure king -- ugly, weak and married to his bossy sister. Quite unlike the beautiful image of another King Tut, with his incomparable mask, that is so ubiquitous. This is one of my early bronzes and bears more connection to my African masks than to my bronze renderings of Abraham, Isaac, or Moses.
