Ink drawn on limestone depicting Pharaoh vanquishing enemies

Ink drawn on limestone depicting Pharaoh vanquishing enemies

Ink drawing on a limestone fragment, Twentieth Dynasty, from the Valley of the Kings in Western Thebes, now housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This Ostracon for King Ramesses IX is a nice example of drawings left behind by ancient artists who were being trained in their craft. The style needs refining and the proportions are not yet ideal. As these were drawn for training purposes, there are several images combined here in one, the king riding his chariot in battle, and the king smiting enemies of Egypt.
