Sphinx of Amenhotep III
Dynasty 18, 1391-1353 B.C.
Faience, l. 1.9 7/8 in. (25 cm)

The facial features of this faience sphinx would identify it as Amenhotep lll even without the inscription. The graceful body of the lion transforms quite naturally into human forearms and hands, an innovation of Dynasty 18. In this form the sphinx combines the protective power of the lion with the royal function of offering to the gods. The even tone of the fine blue glaze and the almost flawless condition of this sculpture make it unique among ancient Egyptian faience statuettes.

Purchase, Lila Acheson Wallace Gift, 1972

 

 

Canopic Jar Lid, about 1353-1335 B.C
Dynasty 18 (Reign of Akhenaten)
Alabaster, h. 7 1/8 in. (18.1 cm)

Although the canopic jar to which this lid belongs was designed for a practical purpose (as a container for an embalmed human organ), the lid is an unusually fine representation of a royal woman that can be dated to the reign of Akhenaten or shortly thereafter. The massive wig of layered curls is a headdress favored by Akhenaten's queen, Nefertiti, their six daughters, and a minor queen, Kiya. The jar was found in Thebes in a tomb in the Valley of the Kings that has aroused a great controversy concerning the events surrounding Akhenaten's death and succession.

Theodore M. Davis Collections, Bequest of Theodore M. Davis, 1915

 

 

Temple of Dendur
Early Roman period, about 15 B.C.
Aeolian sandstone; length of gateway and temple 82 ft. (25 m)

This Egyptian monument, originally erected in Nubia, would have been completely submerged as a result of the construction of the Aswan High Dam, begun in 1960. Instead the temple was given to the U.S. in recognition of the American contribution to the international campaign to save the ancient Nubian monuments.

The temple was built by the Roman emperor Augustus and honors the goddess Isis and two deified sons of a local Nubian chieftain. The complex, reassembled as it appeared on the banks of the Nile, is a simplified version of the standard Egyptian cult temple.

Given to the United States by Egypt in 1965, awarded to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1967, and installed in the Sackler Wing in 1978.


Ancient Egyptian Art


 

Egypt
When a new building was planned for the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1920s, it was acknowledged that the arts of antiquity were central to the story of world art, and the galleries for ancient art were situated at the core of the museum on the second floor. The ancient galleries are arranged chronologically and geographically, beginning with examples of art from prehistory and proceeding through the Near East, Egypt, Greece, Etruria, and Rome.

The first objects from antiquity and Islam to join the collection were donated by Frederick Stearns, a Detroit pharmaceutical manufacturer, in 1890. He gave a large number of things that he had purchased in the Near East and Egypt, including mummies, seals, mosaics, pottery, and other artifacts. For a brief period the museum contributed to the Egypt Exploration Fund and received objects from their excavations as a result. Early donors included Lillian Henkel Haass and her daughter, Constance Haass McMath, who were among the most generous contributors to the ancient collections. Howard Carter, the discoverer of the tomb of Tutankhamun, was commissioned as an agent for the museum and through him six Egyptian objects were acquired.
