Relief in the Temple of Hathor

Relief in the Temple of Hathor
Egypt, Dendera, July 1989

The all overshadowing building in the Dendera Temple Complex is the main temple, namely Hathor temple (historically, called the Temple of Tentyra). The temple has been modified on the same site starting as far back as the Middle Kingdom, and continuing right up until the time of the Roman emperor Trajan. The existing structure was built no later than the late Ptolemaic period. The temple, dedicated to Hathor, is one of the best preserved temples in all Egypt. It contains many stone reliefs and carvings: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendera_Temple_complex

Beautiful and interesting. You can see the classic body proportions in African art, short legs, long torso. The heads here are not as large as they are in subSaharan art, but if you count the headdresses, they seem to fit the formula...
