Description
Throughout their long history, the ancient Egyptians crafted exquisite statues of bronze, copper, silver, and gold as offerings to their gods and for use in temples and shrines. This catalog from the Metropolitan Museum of Art focuses on the art and significance of Egyptian metal statuary, presenting fresh insights on this lustrous and precious work through 67 described pieces, illustrated with 80 color plates and 25 black and white images, including photos and radiographs exploring inner details. The authors trace continuities in the development of the statuary, illuminate how its production was integrated within artistic and social structures, and question its potential role in ritual practice. The extraordinary large bronzes of the Third Intermediate Period, the apogee of the tradition, are explored in particular depth.
