Relief of the Goddess Mut

Before the end of the New Kingdom almost all images of female figures wearing the Double Crown of Upper and Lower Egypt were depictions of the goddess Mut, here labeled "Lady of Heaven, Mistress of All the Gods." The goddess's facial features mark this as a work made sometime between late Dynasty XVIII and relatively early in the reign of Ramesses II (circa 1279-1213 B.C.). For more information on the goddess Mut and her temples, see the installations in Temples, Tombs, and the Egyptian Universe.
