Egypt. Saggara ancient empire. Painted limestone V dynasty. The Louvre Museum. Paris the famous statue here, whose original has a height of 53 cm, shows us an Egyptian scribe, and part of Saggara materials collected in the mid-19TH century by archaeologist Auguste Mariette to enrich the collection of the Louvre. It is known that his name was Kai, son of Hamset, and there is another sculpture in the Museum, which does not appear to serve as scribe, but sitting on a throne, probably forming part of any court, or granting any audience. By its rigid frontality, the expression of his face, and perhaps also the living colorful of painting that still retains, always surprised the great personality that denotes this senior official, usually called the scribe from the Louvre, or the seated scribe. Dressed in a kilt, he is sitting with his legs crossed, in the normal position to write; with his left hand he holds a roll of papyrus partially unwrapped, and the position of his right hand allows us to suppose that he would bring her a Quill or pen to write. The eyes are ebony, with pupils of glass inserted into a copper capsule; the achieved effect is so realistic, it seems his gaze you chase around the room.
