Detail of a laborer who carries a woven basket full of papyrus in a field between cattle, one of whom has a calf who is feeding. The man's head seems to have accidentally been carved too far back as it's not in proportion to his chest, which leans forward. Oops! Often the chest is exaggerated however in relief to convey proper anatomy. In the Late Period, the art of the 30th Dynasty (380-342 B.C.) is best known for its revitalization of Old Kingdom (2700-2200 B.C.) artistic conventions, which were copied, by that time, from one to two-thousand year old tombs. Limestone, Late Period Galleries, 30th Dynasty, Cairo Museum.

Since Ahmose I's defeat of the foreign Hyksos kings who ruled in the Delta at the end of the 17th Dynasty (c. 1550-80s B.C.), the ancient Egyptians began to use the horse and chariot in warfare. This scene comes from a well-preserved talatat block from Akhenaten's capital at Akhetaten (modern Amarna). Imagine how beautiful it must have been fully painted ?! Foreign goddesses who were introduced into Egyptian pantheon in the mid-late 18th Dynasty, such as Astarte and Qedesh are shown on horseback. However, there is currently no evidence that the ancient Egyptians rode horses until the Ptolemaic Period. Horses were strictly used to pull chariots in pharaonic times. They were beloved by the pharaohs, and Ramesses II likely had almost 400 in his stables at his capital of Per-Ramesses (modern Qantir) in the eastern delta. And many had cute and heroic names! Limestone, once painted, New Kingdom, late 18th Dynasty, reign of Akhenaten, Amarna.

The reliefs of princesses in Kheruef (TT 193) are absolutely incredible. These two wear large conical modiuses over their finely braided wigs and wavely sidelocks. The modeling of their faces is superb and naturalistic. They wear long fitted linen gowns and have armlets around their mid-arm while pouring libations from hsi (𓏂)-jars. Kheruef's tomb is famous for its scenes of Amenhotep III's sed-festival. The quality of the carving and modeling rivals that of Ramose's in El-Khokha also dated to Amenhotep III. Tomb of Kheruef (TT 193), Limestone with traces of pigment, New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, reign of Amenhotep III, El-Asasif.

This is an exquisite bust of Hathor as the Celestial Cow Mehet-Wehet, carved from cedar with gilded in gold leaf, ebony, and stone inlay. Hathor was not only a goddess of music, love, sexuality, femininity, and motherhood, but also was worshiped as the 'Mistress of the West' of 'the two sycamores of turquoise' and 'Mistress of the Necropolis'. The goddess is often shown in her cow form in Book of the Dead vignettes emerging from a papyrus thicket and welcoming the dead into the hereafter after they have passed their final judgment and became an 𓅜𓐍 - akh or 'blessed spirit'. Cedar, ebony, and gold leaf, New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, from the Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV 62).

This is a detail of a finely carved Empire style bookshelf that was specially made to hold the Description of Egypt (Description d'Égypte) published in multiple volumes by Napoléon's savants who recorded and documented Egypt's monuments in 1799. This particular column mimics the Hathoric columns found in New Kingdom to Graeco-Roman temple architecture, and was a staple of a temple or shrine dedicated to the goddess. The goddess is shown frontal in a tripartite wig and bovine ears because the cow was her avatar, particuarly in her form associated with fertility, love, childbirth, motherhood, and sexuality. The large sistrum crowned with a winged sun-disk and with images of the goddess Meryt adoring an uræus in a niche supports the capital and is linked Hathor's associations with music, especially her son Ihy, who was the official Egyptian god of music. Oak, Empire style, Netherlandish, 1830.

This is a photo of the first pyramid in Egyptian history! The stepped pyramid of Djoser was likely constructed by his architect Imhotep. The pyramid has a long deep subterranean burial shaft and is essential muliple mastaba tombs stacked upon one another to mimic the stairway to the heaven. The limestone on each tier would have originally been white and finely smoothed. The stepped pyramid is situated in the Djoser's funerary complex in Saqqara. It stands beside the running course and shrine enclosure likely used in the pharaoh's sed-festival, a northern palace, and the king's southern tomb. On the north side of the pyramid is a replica of Djoser's ka-statue (the real one is now in the Cairo Museum), which looks out of his serdab to become one with the Imperishable Stars. Conservation work is currently being conducted on the pyramid due to an earthquake that affect the structure's stability in 1992. Limestone, Old Kingdom, 3rd Dynasty, reign of Djoser (c. 2600 B.C.) built by Imhotep, Chief of Architects, Saqqara.

There are hundreds of crisosphinx also known as ram-sphinx on both sides of the processional way in the First Court between the First and Second Pylon at Karnak. The ram depicted is the ovis longipes with an image of the pharaoh. The pharaoh is shown in the nemes, the beard of kings, mummiform and holding two ankh across his chest. This sphinx avenue was built in the Third Intermediate Period by Pinedjem I (21st Dynasty) and subsequently reorganized multiple times by: Shosonq I (22nd Dynasty) and Taharqa (25th Dynasty) in the Late Period; and finally Augustus in the Græco-Roman Period. The ram was revered because of its physical strength and fecundity and associated with the gods Amun, Khnum, and Banebdjed. Limestone,likely painted.

This doorjamb (?) relief comes from the tomb of Kay on the Qena Bend. He is shown with a short curled coiffeur, bare-chested, and wears a broad collar. In his left hand is a bow and in his right hand are arrows. He wears a starched kilt and his five dogs walk and lay beside him. The inscriptions above each dog designate their individual breed! Beside Kay is either his wife or mother who has long braided hair and wears a broad collar and corseted gown that reveals her breasts. She also wears braclets and anklets and holds a waterlily in her right hand. Kay was an 'Overseer of the Western Desert' and the text above the couple describes him as "the best of the troops on a day of difficulty". It also says that Kay traveled to the western oases in order to probe the desert roads for a fugitive on the loose! Limestone, Middle Kingdom, early 12th Dynasty (1981-1917 B.C.), possibly El-Ausat Qamula, Qena Bend, north of Luxor.

This is a detail of a cedar chair from the tomb of the royal official Yuya and his wife Thuya. The cedar was painted and varnished to look like ebony while the central scene is carved and covered with gold leaf and crowned with a winged sun-disk. It depicts a double scene of the Princess Satamun seated in a kiosk with a overhead floral design. She wears a short braided Nubian wig with a floral modius and a ribboned circlet with a gilded bird. Around her neck is a broad collar and she is seated in a fine chair like the actual chair. In her right hand is a sistrum and in her left hand is a menat-necklace. The inscription says 'daughter of the king' and 'his beloved'. The princess 'is being given a 'gold [necklace] from the southern foreign lands, i.e. Nubia' as per the inscription by an attendant who also wears a modius, circlet and fine stylized gown. Princess Satamun was the granddaughter of Yuya and Thuya and the daughter of their own daughter Queen Tiye who was the Great Wife of pharaoh Amenhotep III. The couple were permitted a stately private burial in the Valley of the Kings (KV 46) and, until the finding of Tutankhamun's Tomb in 1922, it was the most intact and best-preserved tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Their mummies and burial equipment are absolutely stunning! Cedar and gold leaf, New Kingdom, mid-late 18th Dynasty, reign of Amenhotep III (late 1300a B.C.)
