[Ink drawings of a Babylonian figure and figure of Egyptian king seated]
|Main Creator:||Leah, Frank, 1886-1972, artist.|
Black ink illustrations (with lead pencil used to indicate shadows) of two figures. On the left is a stylised Babylonian figure (possibly a sculpture) shown in profile, wearing a helmet with a long beard and holding out a sceptre. On the right is a drawing of a sculpture of a seated Egyptian king on a throne (very similar to colossal statue of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel, Egypt but here figure shown wearing a headress instead of a crown).
