Egyptian Hathor welcomes Sethos I Sculpture museum reproduction art 10" www.Neo-Mfg.com home decor
Size: 9.75" Tall x 4.75" wide
This bas-relief, enhanced with a rich polychromy, was part of the decoration of the tomb of King Sethos I, carved into the cliffs in the Valley of the Kings, west of Thebes.
The goddess Hathor, Lady of the West (the underworld), welcomes Sethos into her domain. She holds out her menat necklace as a symbol of her protection, and takes his hand. The rigorous symmetry of this face-to-face encounter is softened by the attitudes of the two figures.
Hathor stands straight and still, whereas the king seems to be moving, leaning slightly toward her, his legs in a walking position. Both figures are named by the hieroglyphs inscribed on the upper part of the relief. Their functions and qualities are confirmed by specific attributes: on the goddess's wig are the horns of a cow (her sacred animal) and a solar disk (she is the daughter of Ra), while the royal uraeus cobra stands out in front of the king's forehead.
