EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning statue depicts Pharaoh Amenhotep III (also known as Amenophis III) and the ancient Egyptian deity Sobek in a remarkable group sculpture. Dated back to the 18th Dynasty, around 1390-1352 BC, this artwork was carved from calcite, also known as Egyptian alabaster. The statue was discovered in the Sobek temple at Dahamsha, an ancient religious site dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek. Sobek is depicted in human form with the distinctive crocodile head, symbolizing his divine nature as a god associated with the Nile and fertility. His right hand holds the Ankh, an ancient Egyptian symbol of life, bestowing eternal life upon the youthful Amenhotep III. The Pharaoh is dressed in the traditional Nemes headdress, adorned with the uraeus, a symbol of divine protection, and the royal beard. Amenhotep III was a significant ruler during the New Kingdom, known for his extensive building projects and religious reforms. This sculpture showcases the Pharaoh's reverence for the gods and his role as a divine ruler. The intricate details and lifelike qualities of the statue reflect the advanced artistic skills of the ancient Egyptian civilization. The statue is now on display at the Luxor Museum in Egypt, a testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of this ancient civilization. The image of Amenhotep III and Sobek in this group sculpture continues to captivate audiences and inspire wonder, offering a glimpse into the religious beliefs and artistic achievements of ancient Egypt.
