  • Statuette (presumably a detail from a chair or piece of temple equipment) of a Negro captive, kneeling, hands bound behind back. EGYPTIAN / XVIII Dynasty (?) (ca. 1560--ca. 1314 B.C.). Bronze (cast solid). Measurements Height: 14.3 cm. Provenance: Saqqara. Brooklyn Museum
  • Statuette. Full-length, seated, nude figure of a black youth with long corkscrew curls and pursed lips, his knees drawn up to his chin and his ankles bound. Period ALEXANDRIAN. Date ALEXANDRIAN. Black steatite. Height: 9.3 cm. (3 15/16 in.). Description (Seated black man.) According to the museum's catalogue file card (see Boston, Museum of Fine Arts file), this statuette is hollow and was apparently a box whose cover slid in a groove on the under side. Provenance: Corinth. Photo source: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Statuette of Shebenhor Saite Period, Dynasty 26 (c. 664-525 B.C.) Black basalt H.: 28 x 13 x 16,3 cm The Art Institute of Chicago, Gift of Mrs. George L. Otis On front and back the inscriptions ask the gods Osiris and Bastet to give offerings of Upper and Lower Egypt to Shebenhor, son of Hedebhapiirtbin and Iahehaysnakht. Statues such as this were placed in temples to act as intercessors for the donor. This is not, however, a portrait of the donor. The inscription asks the gods Osiris and Bastet to give funerary offerings to the donor, Shebenhor, suggesting that it was perhaps originally placed in a temple dedicated to Bastet of Bubastis.
  • Statuette. Figure of a black youth (Celt) wearing loose trousers and standing with his hands tied behind his back. Period HELLENISTIC. Bronze. Height: 10.2 cm. (4 in.). BERLIN, Pergamonmuseum.

  • n India, Rajasthan or Uttar Pradesh Material Sandstone Measurements H. 19 1/2 in. (49.5 cm) Description Full view This sculpture of a celestial entertainer and her attendant would have been located on an exterior wall of a Hindu temple. The exaggerated pose, flat face, and broad features of the figures suggest the sculpture's origin in Rajasthan or Uttar Pradesh and a date in the 10th century. The large amount of jewelry and the flamboyant flutter of the performer's scarves provide additional evidence for this date, as northwestern Indian temple architecture from the 10th century onward was characterized by elaborate and dramatic decoration. Entertainers, particularly beautiful women, are among the most common images on Hindu temples. They entertain the gods and designate the area within as a special palace or a heaven, where music and dance are readily available. Figures such as this were placed in subsidiary locations in the temple walls and functioned as attendants to the principal images, representations of the gods. Stretching provocatively while holding a tambourine above her head, this figure is either about to begin dancing or has just finished a performance. The smaller female attendant, who reaches up to touch the performer's breast, adds a bit of humor and an erotic element. Repository Asia Society Museum New York, New York, USA Asia Society: The Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection Western or Central Indian Title Celestial Entertainer Work Type Sculpture Date 11th century Location India, Rajasthan or Uttar Pradesh Material Sandstone Measurements H. 21 1/4 in. (54 cm) this image of a female celestial entertainer characterizes the style of sculpture produced in 11th-century Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. The performer twists dramatically, lifting one hand above her head while placing the other (now missing) at her side. She wears a crown, armlet, earrings, and two heavy necklaces, one long and one short. The girdle of beads around her waist and legs, and the elaborate treatment of her jewelry--seen for example in the dense incised lines representing the folds of her skirt and lavish amount of beads used to make her jewelry--are typical features of 11th-century sculpture in the region. The tree above the woman's head bears fruit, which two small monkeys are eating. This shalabhanjika , the combination of a tree and a woman, is one of most enduring images in India and is used in Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain art primarily as a symbol of fertility. The three-dimensionality of this figure suggests that the sculpture may once have served as a bracket figure for a pillar, probably in the interior of a temple.
