About this object

Plaster cast of limestone relief wall carving of Amenhotep III crowned, holding a bowl. The record card says it comes from Amarna, but on the back of the cast it says Deir el Bahri, and this is the more likely source of the original. Donated to Norwich Castle Museum by Mr and Mrs R. J. Colman.
