Beautiful pictures from the City of the Sun
Amarna

http://www.uned.es/geo-1-historia-antigua-universal/NOTICIAS/AKHENATON_AMARNA.htm

On the link that I provided you will see many pictures from the Amarna Period.

Pictures from the tomb of Meri-re II, a royal scribe and superintendent of the household of the Queen, Nefertiti. The second tomb belonged to Ahmose, the fan bearer of the King. It shows a procession to the Aten temple. The digital images used in this webpage were taken by Professors Ying Zuo (Art Dept. SLCC), Michael Fuller (Anthropology Dept. SLCC) and Neathery Fuller (Anthropology Dept. SLCC).

Pictures from the City, talatats, floor pantings, statues etc...........

Great site Smile

This is already an older topic, but I just met Michael Fuller at a talk here in St Louis given by Bob Brier Smile

I only chatted with him briefly but the photographs by MF are really interesting. Most of the pictures are from the tomb of Ahmose from what I have seen.

I really like this picture of the bowing courtiers:


This scene showing Ahenaten and Nefertiti - although defaced - is still quite beautiful:


This image of Ahmose is still quite beautiful. I did a painting of this scene:




This scene showing the offerings before the Aten temple is still amazing in iits detail


I don't know where this stela would have been, but it apparently was at one point inlaid!




There are more pictures here at :

WHOA! You can actually see what the aten temple looked like! It had amarna style pillars within the facade instead of just a flat surface...Akhenaten's always the opposite of tradition LOL, i would never have imagined that it would be so unique!

I know I`m a bit late but I just had a look at the really stunning pictures.

When I saw the picture which shows the front of the Aten temple I wondered why there seem to be two rows of pillars on top of each other.
Was the temple in fact a two-storey building or does the row of pillars on the top actually belong behind the first lower row and is shown in Egyptian manner as being above?

But it is also possible that I am seeing "double" and it is only one row of high pillars
Can anyone clarify this?

Excellent link. I notice that Stephaniep's avatar picture is on there also - the broken facial sculpture (fragment of a royal woman's face).

I really love the moody Akhenaten head sculpture (although probably part of a much larger full bodied sculpture) with the heavy shadowing. It looks remarkable and i think i will take an enlarge copy and have that on my bedroom wall.

Thanks for the links guys,

Stuart
