Egyptian Nubian man Amarna 4" fragment carving www.Neo-Mfg.com Museum Reproduction
The heightened expressiveness with which the sculptor depicted the ethnic features of a Nubian (a native of the area south of Egypt) is characteristic of the art of Amarna.
In particular, this work is reminiscent of the images of Nubians and West Asians found in Haremhab’s tomb at Saqqara, which he built for himself while he was still the chief of Tutankhamun’s army.
