Description

A copper alloy votive statue of Amun. The figure is striding with his arms by his sides and with clenched fists. The double plumes of the headdress are now missing and the statue is heavily corroded. Votive statues of Amun (or Amun-Re) were common from the Third Intermediate Period through the Ptolemaic Period. This object was subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997 by the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
