Torso of a God

Granodiorite , H 38

Torso of a God

Egyptian, New Kingdom, Dynasty 18, last decade of the reign of Amenhotep III, 1359-1349 B.C.

This almost life-size torso was probably carved for the royal jubilee (sed-festival) of the pharaoh Amenhotep III. The loss of the head and the absence of an inscription make it impossible to identify the figure.

Gift of the M. H. de Young Endowment Fund
