Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Outer Space

Outer Space Pharaoh

Ancient Egyptian King Mentuhotep II, who initiated the Middle Kingdom when he reunified upper and lower Egypt. He ruled from c. 2061–2010 BCE. Mentuhotep is said to be one of the first pharaohs deified while still living. The dark color of his skin and the crossed arms are references to Horus, the Egyptian god of death, fertility and resurrection.  The painted sandstone statue is in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Egypt.
