Ramses II ruled over Egypt from the years 1279 BCE to 1213 BCE. A famous statue was erected to him during his reign, and the statue was discovered by archaeologists in the early 1800s CE. Over time, it had fallen and broken into pieces. In 1817, the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was inspired to write a poem about a statue of an ancient ruler. Read the poem "Ozymandias" by Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert … near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Once you have read the text, examine the following depiction of what the statue of Ramses II would have looked like during his reign.
