GOD PRAYER STELE
c. 1450 BC, 18th Dynasty
Location: Nile Valley, Egypt
Kneeling in reverence 3500 years ago, Amehwahsu is shown seeking the
blessing of the great Sun God Ra. The hieroglyphics carved on the front
of the stele provide the text of the prayer. This wonderfully tranquil
figure is an elegant example of a stelophorous (stele-bearing)
statue from the 18th Dynasty during the reign of Amenhotep II. The sky
blue color was a favorite of the Egyptians and was used in some of their
most beautiful and important works. This color was thought to represent
resurrection and rebirth. Our desktop size figure is a very accurate
1/4 scale recreation of the 22-inch granite original.
