    Description: This pair statue of Thutmoses III (left) and the god Amun (right, mostly destroyed) shows the king and the god seated on low throne, their arms intertwined behind their backs in a gesture of intimacy. The king is wearing the nemes headdress topped with double plumes and two ram horns. In his visible hand he grasps an ankh, the symbol of life. Under his feet are the “nine bows,” the symbols of Egypt’s traditional enemies. The king also wears other symbols of kingship such as the “false beard” and the short shendyt kilt. His body is slim and youthful. The figure of Amun was destroyed in antiquity and later repaired (grooves cut into the stone above the god’s body show where the missing head would have been replaced).
