Statue of a Standard Bearer: Hor-nakht


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Shown in the elaborate wig and gown of a New Kingdom courtier, Hor-nakht is depicted as a participant in a temple procession, carrying the standard of a ram-headed deity, perhaps Amen-re, in his left hand. The presence of an "ankh," or life sign, in his right hand is unusual for a statue that does not represent either a king or a god. In this case, it may be an item used in temple ceremonies. The statue's inscriptions request benefits for Hor-nakht from the gods Amen-re and Osiris, including life, prosperity, and health.
