Mummies’ physiognomy and its reflections in the artistic style of the New Kingdom
Keywords:sculpture, mummies, artistic style, anatomy, New Kingdom
The research paper discusses the facial features on a number of statues of kings and queens from the New Kingdom, and whether they are “realistic or idealistic” when compared to their mummies’ faces. The aim is to try to understand the extent to which the anatomical differences of the individual features of the statues’ faces differ to the facial features found on the corresponding mummies’ faces.
