Votive stela of Userhat

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 121

In the text on this stela, Userhat testifies to his own good qualities and to his trust in his god, probably Amun. He is shown here with his wife, Nefertari. Userhat was a priest in the mortuary cults of both Amenhotep III and Tutankhamun, so the couple must have lived during later Dynasty 18. The complex layering of relief and the style of the figures demonstrate the influence of the art of Amarna at Thebes.
