Description

Queen Tiye

18th dynasty statue replica

Dimensions including stand - Height - 13.5 cm / 5-1/4 inches

Square base - 6 cm x 6 cm / 2-3/8 x 2-3/8 inches

Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone with carefully hand painted details replicating tones of the original fragment. It is mounted on a removable felt lined base and responds very well to overhead lighting. A simple desk lamp has been used in these photos and the contours of the face are the most striking feature of this particular representation of Queen Tiye.

* Combined shipping available if you would like to add other items to save on shipping. All excess shipping paid will be refunded.



On offer here for the collector of Amarna era artworks is a rare depiction of Queen Tiye however, some have suggested it could be her son Akhenaten.

Personally, I share the view that it is Queen Tiye but I have taken various photos to reflect the conflict of identity that one can experience with this statue as it seems to be able to morph from Tiye to Akhenaten, depending on perspective.

The influence of this new Amarna artistic style is quite evident in this piece and if it is Tiye, the often severe features of this Queen are given no respite here.

Queen Tiye toured Amarna in year 12 of Akhenaten's reign and this piece perhaps, was one of the last images made for her while she was still alive. She died not long after her visit.

The down turned lips are the greatest signature of Queen Tiye showing a world weary disdain in later portraits.

It is a fabulous piece and the angle of the neck indicates it could possibly have been part of the decoration of a chair. (see the example of the Sitamun chair from Yuya and Thuya's tomb) It could also have been part of a harp's decoration as portraits are often shown on the base curve of surviving examples and in tomb reliefs and paintings.

The choice of the 'Khat' headdress that was a popular choice worn by King and Queen during this period is present here. It must have been a comparatively lightweight cloth construction compared with some of the more complex crowns worn in ceremonial circumstances.

On the brow of this Khat can be seen a small depression that marks where an ancient uraeus probably of gold, would have been attached. The uraeus was the protective cobra worn by Kings, Queens and the gods.
