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.

From the Internet:  “Frederick II’s snuff-box with appliqué fruit and flowers,  chased gold – agate lined with pink silk – jasper – carnelian – nephryt – amethyst – diamonds – glass cabochon.  Frederick II (1712-1786) was a fanatical lover of diamond studded snuff-boxes, whose creation he supervised personally. This extraordinary example recalls the king’s passion for fruits, particularly cherries, whose colours are conveyed by the range of hardstones. “  Frederick II was King of Prussia from 1740 until 1786, the longest reign of any Hohenzollern king.
