amenhotep III statue 5

Statue of Amenhotep III (Nebmaatra), c.1390-1352 BC. Carved in Rose Quartzite from the Luxor Temple. This statue represents Amenhotep on a processional sledge.  He is holding scrolls and has feathers on his hips and is wearing a ritual bull's tail on his back.

The back is thinner and taller than the statue. The top is decorated with a winged sun-disk over a scene representing Amun seated on his throne.  Below this are 4 columns in sunken relief listing the name and titles of Amenhotep.  The name of Amun in the inscriptions has been erased and not restored.
