I met a traveler from an antique land,Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand 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 readWhich 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 decayOf that colossal Wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away."
Percy Bysshe Shelley - Shelley’s Poetry and Prose (1977)
Lost wax cast ring featuring Ramses II Cartouche.

To its left is Ma’at, the goddess of justice, recognizable by the feather above her head. She is holding the Ankh sign in her hand, which is the symbol for life. Below that is an axe on wood, which stands for the word stp and below that is the wavy sign for water, or the letter n. The cartouche reads: Usermaatre-setepenre, the official name of Ramses II after he became king.
