Akhenaten, originally named Amenhotep IV, ruled Egypt for 17 years (1367-1350 b.c.) together with his beautiful Queen Nefertiti. He was the son of Amenhotep III. After the fifth year of his reign, he assumed the name Akhenaten ("The Glory of the Aten"). He initiated what would amount to decades of religious reform, altering millennia of religious and civil traditions in the process. Akhenaten erected a temple to the Sun God at Karnak. The Aten temple contained a peristyle court whose 28 pillars supported colossal statues of the King. This reproduction bust is what remains of one of them. It is modeled after an original that is currently housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Statue measures 11.5 inches high, 7 inches wide, and 5.5 inches deep. Statue weighs approximately 11 lbs.
Modeled after an original historical artifact, this item may feature slight variations in color, details, and overall design.
