Question description

AP art history question involving Napoleon I on His Imperial Throne by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (French, 1780–1867) and the Standing Statue of Hatshepsut by an unknown artist, Thebes, Egypt.

How are the poses similar in these two images? What aspects of the poses make them work effectively to communicate power and authority across cultures and through time?

How does each of these images draw on traditional iconographies of power to assert the own authority of its own subject? What role does ceremonial garb play in each portrait?
