This replica made of resin is the reproduction of a Amon Ré fragment face, Egypte 1295-1069 J.C.
This fragment from a statue shows the face of a male divinity, the chin adorned with a braided beard attached by straps.
The very fine and regular features of the face reflect the artistic quality of the statue it once belonged to.
The top of the wide-open eyes is outlined with a protruding rim, prolonged by a strip of make-up in relief.
The eyebrows, also treated in relief, are harmoniously arched. The finely modelled mouth gives a hint of a smile.
This face belongs to a group of statues, at present in the Museum of Cairo, several fragments of which were found in the temple of Amon-Re in Karnak. This group portrays the great dynastic god Amon-Re and the goddess Mut who is associated with him.
They were seated on each side of a small effigy of a standing king, probably Sethi I.
