Pendants in the Shape of Amun-Re and Nefertem


Description Provenance Credit
Description The taller statuette represents the god Amun-Re in a standing posture with his left foot forward. He is dressed in a divine pleated kilt, and wears the divine chin-beard, and a large feather crown combined with the sun-disk. The pendant has a base with two lines of inscription, and a loop on the back of the crown for suspension. The other pendant represents Nefertem standing, left foot advanced, with fine incised lines marking the kilt, the heavy wig and the decoration of the counterpoises on the headdress. There is a very large suspension loop behind the lotus, and an inscription on the base. The surface is partially well preserved, the top of the feathers are broken off.
Provenance Amun-Re: Dikran Kelekian, New York and Paris [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1924, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest. Nefertem: Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1927, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
