Fragment of a Relief Showing Akhenaten

By Egyking
The fragment depicts Akhenaten sitting on a stool. His face and the blue crown have for the most part been destroyed. Akhenaten is wearing a long pleated dress and a broad ornate collar. He is supporting himself on the stool with his left hand, the right is bent upwards.

In that hand he is holding a blue dish. Between the raised arm and his face are some rays of the sun disc ending in hands. In front of the king is another person of whom a small part of the clothing is preserved. The paint is well preserved. The fragment probably comes from a house altar.
