The limestone stele represents Akhenaten and his Holy family. Akhenaten was a pharaoh in Egypt of the 18 Dynasty. He changed his name for himself after his conversion to the cult of Aten. Before to this conversion, he was known as Amenhotep IV. His region is known as Amarna period as he moved to the capital of Egypt from the traditional site to the city he founded, Akhenaten, which came to be known as Amarna. Also, I read in the book that in Egyptian history, the Amarna period is the most controversial and has been written, studied and debated more than any other period. This stele is considered to be idol and intended to be retain in a private church of an Amarna house. Moreover, the stele is decorated with the scene of an intimate moment from everyday life of the royal family under the shade of Aten. The Royal couple seated on stools and facing each other. Their elder daughter stands between them while the younger daughters are seen on their mother’s lap. The king(Akhenaten) is portrayed with his characteristic features. He is deformed with a white crown with ribbons, face, belly, breast, large pelvis and belly. He wears a long-plaited kilt, while his wife wears a transparent long mantel and a headdress. She is shown wearing her characteristic high crown. In addition, the sculpture used lines to emphasize that the sun was shining down on Akhenaten and his wife Nefertiti with their three children. The curved in their neck shows that the happy couple are influenced by the wind. In conclusion, we can strongly feel that generally Egyptian art and culture experienced little change than others; Amarna period is exceptional.
