Sandstone carving executed in shallow raised relief dated from the first centuries of the New Kingdom. Featuring brilliant line work and strikingly delicate detail, this masterpiece is a wonderful example of New Kingdom relief carving. Measuring 15″ tall by 10.5 inches wide and over an inch and a half in depth, this substantial piece of stone is mounted on a solid black wood frame. The main figure faces left with head turned wearing a highly elaborate wig displaying both sumptuous waves and delicate strands of braids. Both eye and brow are treated with traditional make up lines and the visage of the nobility depicted is calm, serene, and stately. Behind the figure sit three lotus buds in full bloom and an intricately carved geometric motif at the central apogee.
