Ptolemaic statue of a woman, unknown source, Ptolemaic period, Egypt, 3rd or 2nd century BCE, limestone. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with CapturingReality.

Although the statue dates back to the period of Greek rule in Egypt, the artist did not give up the Pharaonic tradition. The feet and part of the base have been restored.
