They are usually also seen holding scepters and staffs, and they did this to show their position of authority. The name Pharaoh means “great house”. Here are names of some of the world’s greatest reigning pharaohs; Akhenaten, Amenhotep III, Cleopatra VII, Hatshepsut, Khufu, King Tut or Tutankhamun, Ramses II and of course Snefru.

STEP 1.

Start with some basic shapes and lines to create a frame of manniquine like figure that you will sculpt and mold into a pharaoh. Begin by making a circle for the head, and draw a small neck line that connects to another shape for the wide or broad chested torso.
