Galloping Horses

New Kingdom, Amarna Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 131

These horses are shown running free, their movements so wild that one animal is charging in the opposite direction. The smaller scale of the animal at the bottom suggests that another part of the herd was shown below.
