PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION
For the gesture of the left hand resting against the chest and the right hand clasping the hem of the garment see the statue of Rehuankh in the British Museum: A. Oppenheimer, Dor. Arnold, Diet. Arnold, and K. Yamamoto, eds., Ancient Egypt Transformed: The Middle Kingdom, 2015, no. 65; the author notes that “his reverent pose and distant gaze suggest an individual witnessing a sacred rite, as would be appropriate for a figure standing in a chapel or temple.”
Also from the Stoclet Collection is a Middle Kingdom seated statue of a Vizier now in the Saint Louis Museum of Art: see Frankfort, op. cit., p. 77, and http://emuseum.slam.org/objects/48420/seated-vizier.
