Relics of the Nile is thrilled to present this amazing and extremely rare limestone Amarna relief. This is a finely incised talatat fragment dating to the Amarna Period (18th Dynasty, 1344-1344 B.C.) and depicts a hand and arm of Akhenaten and rays from the solar disc. Faint traces of red pigment remain within the rays. Images showing a similar complete scene are attached. This is an extremely rare and affordable opportunity to acquire a detailed piece of an Amarna relief. The relief measures 5.25" x 3 1/8" and includes a description and appraisal by Royal Athena Galleries. The relief is custom mounted and ready for immediate display. Reference Pharaohs of the Sun, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 1999.
