Royal Statues in Procession

Egyptian, Classical, Ancient Near Eastern Art

On View: Egypt Reborn: Art for Eternity, Egyptian Orientation Gallery, 3rd Floor

The hieroglyphic text in this fragment identifies the figure on the left as Thutmose III. On the right edge in front of him, traces of another figure, most likely the female king Hatshepsut, remain. These figures are images of statues—not of the rulers themselves—that "participated" in a religious procession depicted on a wall of Hatshepsut's funerary temple.
