Court Ladies at a Ceremony

New Kingdom, Amarna Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 121

This group of figures gazes upward at a much larger figure, presumably the king. They hold something to their mouths, perhaps some kind of food. The variability of their poses and adornment suggests a diverse crowd and a festive mood. On the left side a policeman oversees a scene, now missing.
