In Ancient Egyptian history the art of sculpture is seen over and over again in many different uses. We see sculpture worked into the architecture of temples and tombs with gods, men and women carved into the front of columns as if they are helping to hold the column or structure up. Sculptures of Ancient Egyptian time ranges in size from the largest monolith statue in the world, the Great Sphinx of Giza, to smaller statues of gods that filled tombs to protect the dead. We see sculptures of large figures, either gods or mythical creatures used to guard the entrances to temples and wall reliefs in temples and tombs that tell stories of events of their time. The Kings of Ancient Egypt documented their reigns with statues and busts of themselves which are commonly found in their burial tomb. We see this in Upper part of a Statue of King Thutmose III while we are not told where it was used we know that is was part of a column which is inscribed with the royal titulary that a portion has been destroyed over time. With this sculpture of King Thutmose III being attached to a column it further supports the Ancient Egyptian style of statues facing straight ahead as if to only be viewed from the front. This statue does break up the trend of Kings and those of importance being seen as stern and serious because King Thutmose III is depicted as smiling here. Kings and people of importance were able to have their sculptures created by the most talented artists of the time. The attention to detail and quality of the materials used is always a sign of wealth or importance. When viewing the Seated Statue of Nehy we can tell she was a woman of wealth and importance not only because she has a statue created of her for a tomb but because of her hairstyle and the manner in which she is dressed. The Statue of Chai-hapi is another example of elaborate and fine craftsmanship being used in a statue of someone of importance as he was a priest and high ranking courtier in the second half of the 19th dynasty. The Statue of Chai-hapi also illustrates the importance of the gods in the Ancient Egyptian times as he is shown holding a large Djed of a sistrum of Hathor’s head which is used in celebrations to honor the goddess. Horus was the ancient Egyptians’ national patron god and was portrayed in many pieces of art throughout the years including Horus Falcon Wearing Crown of Upper and Lower Egypt with Uraeus. This lost-wax cast contains many bones sealed inside and was once decorated very ornately with different colors, elaborate feathers of incised lines and gold foil around it’s eyes. The maker must have felt by making this statue so ornately he was pleasing the god Horus. Sadly, not all Ancient Egyptian sculptures have survived throughout the years. With the Head of a God we are only left with a head of what was once a life-sized statue of the deity. From what we can tell it follows traditional Egyptian style of being straight, stiff and serious but without the rest of the statue we will never know. The Ancient Egyptians took pride in their artwork especially their statues. Each statue had its own purpose while following the Ancient Egyptian style.
