From the time of Amenhotep III. The figurine is made of red quartzite. The colour was probably associated with the rising sun, considering that around this time, the cult of the all-powerful sun god was on the rise.

Djoser [ ca. 2670 BCE ] was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 3rd dynasty during the Old Kingdom and the founder of this epoch. He is well known under his Hellenized names Tosorthros (from Manetho) and Sesorthos (from Eusebius). He was the son of king Khasekhemwy and queen Nimaethap, but if he also was the direct throne successor is still unclear.
