This relief, showing both male and female attendants, is an excellent example of the exaggerated softness and grace with which the human body was portrayed in the art of the Amarna Period. The slender, elongated limbs, the wide hips and thighs of the women, and the bulging bellies of the men are characteristic of the Amarna style.
