Limestone head of an officialFrom Egypt18th Dynasty, about 1350-1300 BCFrom a statueThis head has many similarities with those of the reign of Amenhotep III (1390-1352 BC) andalso of the later Eighteenth Dynasty (about 1550-1295 BC), such as the limestone statue of ahusband and wife on display in The British Museum (EA36). However, the almond-shapedeyes and the shape of the mouth probably suggest a date before the Amarna Period (1390-1327 BC). This head of an official is a masterpiece of the Egyptian sculptors art. Every efforthas been made to carefully model the face and the characteristic double wig of this period.Height: 11 cmWidth: 13.2 cmEA 2339On loan to the exhibition Eternal Egypt: Masterworks of Ancient Art from the BritishMuseum, at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada (22 January - 22 May 2005)W.

Limestone statuette of a priest holding an offering tableSaid to be from Thebes, Egypt18th Dynasty, around 1340 BCThis statuette is remarkable for the bright appearance of the stone, the modelling of the face,and the emphasis on the lines of the eye.It probably came from a tomb, and represents the eldest son of the tomb owner, whose role itwas to carry out the rites and duties of the cult of his father. Priests carrying out these roles,usually called sem or iwnmutef priests, are often shown with a sidelock of hair as part of theirofficial costume. Regardless of the real age of the priest, the sidelock emphasises the relativeyouth of the heir in comparison with the deceased. Here the dark blue colour of the sidelock,contrasting with the black of the wig, seems to indicate that it was in reality a separatehairpiece.It has been suggested that the statue represents Thutmose, eldest son of Amenhotep III(1390-352 BC), who died before his father.Height: 30.2 cmGift of the Earl of Carlisle (1889)BM EA 21979On loan to the exhibition Eternal Egypt: Masterworks of Ancient Art from the British Museum,at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada (22 January - 22 May 2005)A.P.
