One of the most alluring pieces I saw was Sahure and a Nome God, a gneiss high-relief statue which was created between 2458 BCE and 2446 BCE. In this statue, the second Egyptian King of the Fifth Dynasty, Sahure, sits on the throne with the small god of the Cop tite Nome to his side.

  • Statues Of Rahotep And Nefert
    985 words
    The Statues of Rahotep and Nefert The first thing that strikes an observer of these two statues is the excellent condition they are in. The paint on the two figures, Rahotep and Nefert, is extremely well preserved and there is only a minuscule amount of perceptible damage. Rahotep, who is seated on the left, retains the air of nobility and grandeur that a king's son and high priest would have undoubtedly enjoyed during his lifetime. His wife, Nefert, sits adorned with an intricate wig and headba...

It also was the only way that Tamar could ensure her dependent status within her late husband's family and evade the shame of returning home. The WBC explains her predicament precisely, "Even more anomalous is the young childless widow who has no hope of becoming a fruitful member of her husband's clan once the husband is dead. Indeed, she has altogether lost her tie with that clan. Yet she, like the barren wife, no...
  • Statue Of A Young Boy

    The Statue of a and the Portrait statue of a boy both depict similar subjects, however are greatly different in how they accomplish this task. Through detail, or lack there of, the Greeks and Romans are able to display a certain value they have in its members.

    Compare the statue of Haremhab with the statue of Queen Hatshepsut These two statues are famous to the Egyptian art era.
