Statue of Minemheb

Granodiorite, Overall: 45 x 16.6 x 28.3 cm (17 11/16 x 6 ½ x 11 1/8 in.).

Reign of Amenhotep III. New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, ca. 1391-1353 BC.

From the Cleveland Museum of Art

Minemheb was one of the many court officials who helped prepare for Amenhotep III’s 30-year jubilee festival. Clearly, Minemheb regarded this as the high point of his career, since his title as chief of construction for the jubilee temple is the primary one provided on this statue. It is actually a statue within a statue: Minemheb kneels to present a small altar, upon which squats a statue of the god Thoth in baboon form. Carved in extremely hard stone, Minemheb’s statue is nonetheless carefully detailed and superbly modeled. Special attention was given to the rendering of the baboon’s face. The heavy-lidded eyes and furrowed brow give the animal an almost contemplative expression.
