Funerary Figurine (Shabti) of Ken-Amun
Documentary sources reveal that Kenamun administered the cattle of the "Estate [Temple] of Amun" under Amunhotep II. Compared with the earlier shawabti figure of Ahhotep on the left, this statue's eyes are smaller, the nose is thicker, and the small mouth is less curved. These differences reflect the styles of different rulers; similar features appear on a much larger scale on the face of Amunhotep II exhibited in this gallery.
