Seller: egy.antique (137) 100%, Location: Luxor, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232880941536 RARE ANTIQUE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN Statue King Akhenaten Akhnaton Mask 1353 Bce About this item : Akhenaten is believed to be the world’s first monotheist by putting his faith in a single god (although other gods were still mentioned in inscriptions). His belief in the one god, Aten, was so powerful that he moved his capitol city from Thebes, one of the largest cities in Egypt at the time, to the city of Akhetaten (modern-day Amarna). This city was to be a tribute to the sun disc god and roughly translates as “Horizon of Aten”. Akhenaten began removing depictions of other gods as he pushed his people to follow his monotheistic view. Statues, carvings, and paintings of other deities were defaced or destroyed. Any tribute or economic gains offered to other gods were absorbed into the new belief system. During the first five years of Akhenaten’s seventeen-year reign, he constructed a Temple to Aten in the Karnak Temple Complex. During the 18th dynasty, Karnak was a religious gathering place where most of the pharaohs contributed to the glories of Egypt. It stood as a beacon of religious expression and a historical database of sorts. Ordinary people were not permitted to worship the Aten directly. Instead they were obliged to worship their pharaoh who claimed to be the sole intermediary between the Aten and the people. The new directive gave the king absolute power over his people. His motives may have been political as it meant he was able to dispense with the services of his once overly powerful priests. Origin: Egypt Payment: -We Only Accept Paypal.
