Chapter Summary

The four sculptures discussed in this chapter, two relief fragments and two statue fragments, are all in the permanent collection of the San Antonio Museum of Art in San Antonio, Texas. Opened in 1986, the museum has a relatively small but significant collection of ancient Egyptian art and archaeological artifacts. The first San Antonio object to be considered is a relief sculpture depicting the important Mayor of Thebes, Fourth Prophet of Amun, and ancient Egyptian art connoisseur, Mentuemhat. The second sculpture presented here represents a figure that was most likely a part of a larger, multi-figural composition. A third Late Period sculpture fragment in the San Antonio collection once represented its owner standing under the protection of a deity in bovine form, possibly the goddess Hathor represented as a sacred cow.
