Item:352782748451Egyptian Antiques Head Face Sculptures Amulet Art Amarna Revolution Akhenaton The Unique Sculptures From the Workshop of Amenhotep IV Item Historical Overview: Ancient Egyptian art was generally very formal. When depicting people, traditional art stuck closely to strict guidelines and depicted people in formal poses. Amenhotep IV (Akhetaton) broke the mould in this respect: Faces were depicted with pronounced facial folds, and narrow, slitted eyes, while the body itself a heavy paunch, large hips. Supporting the suggestion that Akhenaten did have an androgynous figure. The message was clear, Akhenaten, through his radical religious changes, had turned his back on the gods and so offended them.Within a few years, Amarna, Akhenaten's glorious 'Horizon of the Aten' had been completely abandoned, its king and queen buried and forgotten Condition: Good (As Shown In Pictures)Dimensions: 4.5 x 3.0 x 1.0 InchWeight: 260 gm Terms & conditions: •High Quality, Buy with Confidence!•All items listed have been Handmade and engraved by Professional Local Egyptian Craftsmen.
