Funerary Figure of Akhenaten

New Kingdom, Amarna Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 122

Although it lacks an inscription, this shabti is easily recognizable as Akhenaten. The nemes headcloth and the crook and flail shown on this example are more traditional shabti attributes than the khat headcloth and the ankh hieroglyphs found on other funerary figures of this king (see 47.57.2 and 66.99.37).
