Because of his being a Rebel most figures were destroyed after his death. Could be why it item is damaged and broken like it is.

SOME GREAT FACTS BELOW: One of ancient Egypt’s most controversial pharaohs, Akhenaten was also known as Amenhotep IV. Ancient Egypt was ruled by this heretic pharaoh for 17 long years and he belonged to the 18th Dynasty. The pharaoh was known by many interesting names like the Rebel Pharaoh, The Heretic Pharaoh and the Great Heretic. Akhenaten believed in the existence of only one supreme God called Aten and therefore changed his name from Amenhotep IV to show his belief. So, let’s go on with this list of amazing Akhenaten facts that will throw light on this radical religious innovator. Akhenaten was the son of Amenhotep, Born to Amenhotep III and the Royal Queen Tiye, His eldest son Thutmose, the crown prince died due to unknown reasons and this led to the death of Amenhotep. The famous Pharaoh Tut or Tutankhamun or Tutankhamen was the son of Akhenaten but not born of Nefertiti. He was born to one of his biological sisters who was also Akhenaten’s wife. However, many historians doubted the authenticity of this fact, but DNA tests conducted in 2010 proved that Tut was in fact Akhenaten’s son. Akhenaten’s rule can be called the most glorious as it was during his reign that art and architecture flourished and reached its pinnacle. He got many temples and structures built during his rule of 17 years of which the Temple of Amenhotep IV is the most famous for its magnificent structure. Not only this, art was revived and artists were told to portray realistic pictures of people. Also, the subjects painted were taken from ordinary day to day life of people and their daily activities. Akhenaten also motivated the artists to paint royal women. This is why there are many art forms of the Great King, Pharaoh One of the most riveting fact about Akhenaten that everyone should be aware of. Both Akhenaten and his religion, Atenism were erased from the records soon after the pharaoh’s death. People discarded his religion and got back to practicing the traditional religions. His traces were erased and no pharaoh that succeeded him included his name in the king lists. However, we came to know about him and his legacy only in the 19th century when his site of Amarna was discovered. *** Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. ** Private Collection Estate items Provenance: Egypt, Material: Stone, California Prop 65 Warning: NONE
