Sfinx op beeld Horemheb Turijn

Bericht door Nofret » wo 29 apr 2015, 8:55

Het viel me op dat op een Beeld van Horemheb & Mutnodjemet, aan de zijkant een aparte Sfinx afbeelding is aangebracht. Nu weten we dat Horemheb veel beelden heeft overgenomen en mijn idee is dat dit bij dit beeld dit zeker het geval is, kijkend naar de Sfinx die van een vrouw is. Aan het hoofddeksel te zien zou je denken dat het Nefertiti is:

Maar misschien is het Teje wel, die ook als Sfinx is uitgebeeld in haar Tempel in Sedeinga (Sudan) in een iets andere versie, zonder de vleugels :

Volgens Wikipedia:

"A double statue of Horemheb and Mutnedjmet was found in Karnak, but is now in the Museo Egizio in Turin (1379). On Mutnedjmet's side of the throne she is depicted as a winged sphinx who adores her own cartouche. As Sphinx she is depicted wearing a flat topped crown topped with plant elements associated with the goddess Tefnut. The back of the statue records Horemheb's rise to power."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutnedjmet

"Tefnut is a goddess of moisture, moist air, dew and rain in Ancient Egyptian religion. She is the sister and consort of the air god Shu and the mother of Geb and Nut.

"Literally translating as "That Water", the name Tefnut has been linked to the verb 'tfn' meaning 'to spit' and versions of the creation myth say that Ra (or Atum) spat her out and her name was written as a mouth spitting in late texts.

"Like most Egyptian deities, including her brother, Tefnut has no single ideograph or symbol. Her name in hieroglyphics consists of four single phonogram symbols t-f-n-t. Although the n phonogram is a representation of waves on the surface of water, it was never used as an ideogram or determinative for the word water (mw), or for anything associated with water."

The Sun Queen’sTrademark: A Study of the Tall Blue Crown of Queen Nefertiti
Major Professor: PatriciaPodzorski, PhD.

The iconic tall blue crown favored by queen Nefertiti, wife of the pharaoh Akhenaten, isunique. I believe it was strongly influenced by a crown seen in depictions of queen Tiye as a sphinx from Sedinga, Nubia and the king’s xprS crown.

The choice of Nefertiti’s unique crown was dictated by the need of the Atenist theology for a visual signifier of the link between the queen,the goddess Tefnut in her various forms, and the
rwty lions.
The connection between Shu and Tefnut and the solar guardian lions points directly to the notion that Akhenaten and Nefertiti, a spersonifications of the primeval twins, were both guardians, and off spring, of their unique solar deity, the Aten. To understand how Nefertiti’s crown helped define her status and roles during the Amarna period, this thesis examines the crown’s possible origins and divine associations, contextof use, and Nefertiti’s titles and epithets that appear beside it.

Wat ik hiermee bedoel, is dat het beeld dus heel goed van Nefertiti of Teje geweest kan zijn, gezien de Amarna periode en andere stijl, denk ik zelf eerder aan Teje. Jammer dat de mannelijke kop eraf is, anders was het niet zo moeilijk geweest, Amenhotep III haal je overal tussen uit !
