Fragment of a Jubilee Scene
Amunhotep IV's cloak and the curved scepter in front of his face indicate that this detail once showed the king participating in the sed-festival, an ancient rite of royal renewal celebrated in Egypt since before Dynasty 1 (circa 3000–2800 B.C.). Amunhotep IV's first festival occurred at Karnak in the fourth or fifth year of his reign, just before he moved the capital to el Amarna and changed is name to Akhenaten.
