Comments

According to Dreyer 2013, this statue probably shows Narmer after his death as an ancestral god, "the great white one", and may have originated in his as-yet-unidentified funerary enclosure at Abydos. According to Aston, Harrell and Shaw 2000, the material is more accurately described as travertine.
