Amon and Mut

RE000073

New product

This small group, of a rare finesse of execution, evokes the gods Amon and Mut, adorned with all their attributes.

Amon is represented here in a very hieratic pause. Dressed in a plumage Corset dress, he wears two high feathers adorning all the hairstyles of heavenly deities.

Mut, evocation of motherhood, crowned with the crown of Upper and Lower Egypt on a corpse of vulture, embraces the god Amon with his left arm. The rare elegance of this divinity is further accentuated by a feminine costume found on rare images of queens and goddesses up to Cleopatra.

A hieroglyphic text engraved on the dorsal pillar consecrates this round bump: a hymn to Amon-Re and Mut is dedicated by Merimaat, a simple particular which is thus placed under the protection of the masters of the temple of Karnak.

On the basis, a frieze of prophylactic signs evoking life, stability and prosperity, symbolizes the divine essence from which the two divine forms originate.
