Relief study of King Akhenaten

The so-called ‘excessive’ style at the beginning of the Amarna period is especially obvious with this small relief study. The thin face, heavy eyelids over narrow, slightly slanting eyes, long, hanging chin, long nose, emphasized nasolabial folds, full lips as well as the forward curve of the neck all characterize the early representations of king Akhenaten. The contrast between soft and sharp forms, weak and strong contours of the face have been excellently captured by the artist.

New Kingdom, Amarna Period, 18th Dynasty,

reign of Akhenaten,

ca. 1353-1336 BC. Now in the Egyptian Museum of Berlin.
