Egyptian Museum Quality Replica. Amarna. Akhenaten Rule. Harpist Head. Sculpture. Egypt / Australia
Amarna is an Egyptian archaeological site. About 1300 BC, Pharaoh Akhenaten built a capital city on that site. It is about 200 miles south of Cairo.
This piece is a limestone / quartzite composition replica of the original harpist head currently residing in the Louvre (in wood). This sculpture captures the essence of Pharaoh Aktenaten’s style and was once the figurehead of a royal musical instrument, the harp. It was quite common to incorporate the facial features of Aktenaten into many different works of art. It is textured and colored to create the appearance of the original piece of art.
The creator/sculptor of this piece is from Australia. His specialty is works-of-art from the ancient past . . . primarily Egypt. He has and does have art commissions from all over the world. Very talented. Check out his other pieces on my site.
On a provided stand with felt on the bottom. Cracks are common and not considered a defect.
I originally purchased this piece for my own collection but I want to spread this art to EsotericStuff followers and friends.
