A relief fragment from the Temple of Tuthmosis III at Deir el-Bahari

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Primary publication of a fragment of painted raised relief held in the Nicholson Museum at the University of Sydney, on loan from the Australian Museum, AML 74/E16270. It originated from Egypt Exploration Fund excavations near Djeser-akhet, a small temple dedicated to Tuthmosis III and the god Amun at Deir el-Bahari. The fragment comes from the decorated walls of the temple, and depicts a male figure wearing an atef crown, identified as Tuthmosis III. Several iconographic features of the crown indicate changes to religious thought and and royal ideology which took place during his reign. This article should be read in conjunction with a paper by Janina Wiercińska in Egyptian Art in the Nicholson Museum (2006), placing the piece in the wider decorative scheme of the temple.
