|Date||1352 - 1336 BCE|
|Description||Fragment of a sandstone relief carved in the distinctive artistic style of the Amarna Period.
The relief depicts the upper bodies of two men carved in sunk relief. Both men seem to be bending as if at work. Their bodies are painted red and traces of black paint can be seen on the wigs. Above their heads are the feet of two men, also painted red. There are traces of white paint on the background of the relief.
The men are shown in an unconventional stance, typical of art from the Amarna Period. Their facial features are also typical of the Amarna Period, with almond-shaped eyes, flaring nostrils and full lips.
