Egypt Votive stela of Amenemope 1479 BC-1425 BC

EGYPT, Mageb
Votive stela of Amenemope 1479 BCE-1425 BCE

This small votive stela (inscribed stone slab) depicts private individuals worshipping a venerated deity. It would have been dedicated at a shrine or temple and reflects the personal piety of the family. The stela shows Amenemope and his wife and son adoring Ra-Horakhty, the great creator god. In her left hand the wife carries a small perfume bottle, and the son carries a duck on a string.
