Egyptian Limestone Statue at Christie's

Christie's are holding what they call 'The Exceptional Sale' and rightly so, because many of the lots for sale are unlikely to be found anywhere else in the world. Leading that sale is this Egyptian Limestone statue 'for the Inspector of the Scribes Skhemka' which is dated circa 2400-2300 BC. The sculpture is valued at £4-6 million but I would imagine it's hard to value something so unique with no real frame of reference for anything similar!
