History Egyptian Akhenaten, Nefertiti & Daughters Plaque Artifact Sculpture 11" www.Neo-Mfg.com home decor

Size 10.5"

This small stele, probably used as a home altar, gives an seldom opportunity to view a scene from the private live of the king and queen. Akhenaton and Nefertiti are shown with the three oldest of their five daughter. While the daughters are being held and caressed by their parents the placement of the god Aten in the centre of the scene reminds of the official monotheistic religion in the Amarna period. Aten is represented as a sundisc with sunrays ending in hands proffering 'ank'-signs (life-signs) to the royal couple.
Only through the intercession of Nefertiti and Akhenaton could ordinary people partake in the divine salvation.
The body forms shown on the relief, the overlong proportions, wide hips, thin legs and the forward curved necks, are typical of the early Amarna artistic style.
