Ancient Egyptian Ram Deity Relief

“Here, in much deeper, dramatic, yet subtle relief, with none of the fine engraved details that distinguish the hieroglyphic figures of animals and birds, is one of the masterpieces of Egyptian sculpture. The handling of the scales of the horn over the carefully modelled form alone is sufficient to denote the work of a superb artist.  The addition of a human wig and shoulder shows this to be the portrait of a ram deity, not merely the animal.” – Egyptian Art: The Metropolitan Museum of Art Bulletin V22 no7 March 1964

 

The original piece is currently exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
