I really like the AE version of "toy train scenes."

They allow us a peek of day to day life and society.

This is a call to show one model per post.

Please, no racial invectives in this thread, thank you.

herds of cattle are being driven past Mehenkwetre by muscular and active herdsmen, carrying staves. The lord, attended by his son and heir, sits in a sort of grand-stand, surveying his live stock critically while scribes take note of the number and condition of the beasts. The figures of the men are each about eight inches high.

I found some good Wooden Models of Amunhotep III

 -

Amunhotep III

The dynamics of permanence and change in Egyptian art are well reflected in this statuette of Amunhotep III. The form of the striding male figure dates back to as early as Dynasty 3 (circa 2675–2625 B.C.). The Blue Crown, an element of iconography, did not appear until right before Dynasty 18 (circa 1539 B.C.), more than one thousand years later. The style was completely new: unlike most Egyptian kings, Amunhotep III allowed himself to be portrayed as an aging man with a noticeable paunch and sagging jowls.

* Medium: Wood, gilded
* Possible Place Collected: Thebes, Egypt
* Dates: ca. 1390-1352 B.C.E.
* Dynasty: late XVIII Dyansty
* Period: New Kingdom
* Dimensions: 10 3/8 in. (26.3 cm) Base: 6 5/16 x 1 1/16 x 2 3/8 in. (16 x 2.7 x 6 cm)

Standing Statuette of Lady Tuty

Lady Tuty's statuette was discovered in a communal tomb at Medinet Gurob. The style of Tuty's sculpture is more traditional than a statue of Lady Mi also found at the tomb: the figure is slimmer and the fringed dress is depicted in a plainer, heavier fabric. Certain elements—such as the big gilded earrings and the faint traces of gilded sandals—associate her with the extraordinary wealth of Amunhotep's time. The cone on her head represents a type of perfumed ointment worn by wealthy Egyptians at banquets and other opulent occasions. The cone gradually melted, releasing its fragrance over the hair and clothes.

* Medium: Wood, gilded
* Place Excavated: Medinet Gurob, Egypt
* Dates: ca. 1390-1352 B.C.E.
* Dynasty: XVIII Dynasty
* Period: New Kingdom
* Dimensions: 10 1/8 x 1 7/8 x 5 1/2 in. (25.7 x 4.8 x 14 cm)

Statuette of the Lady Mi Standing

One of the finest wooden sculptures to survive from antiquity, this exquisitely carved figure of Lady Mi shows the elaborate wig and huge gold earrings worn by the great women of King Amunhotep's court. Both Amunhotep III and Queen Tiye allowed themselves to be represented as mature—rather than eternally youthful—individuals. Faithful courtiers followed the royal lead. The carver of this figure indicated the drooping breasts and sagging belly of an older woman beneath the gossamer linen of the dress.

* Medium: Wood, gilded
* Place Excavated: Medinet Ghurob, Egypt
* Dates: ca. 1390-1353 B.C.E.
* Dynasty: XVIII Dynasty
* Period: New Kingdom
* Dimensions: 6 3/16 x 1 3/4 x 2 1/4 in. (15.7 x 4.4 x 5.7 cm) Base: 3/4 in. (1.9 cm)

From the tomb of Mesehti, 11th Dynasty.

Other angles [click here] also reveal the great detail applied to these figurines.

Check out the attention to the differences in the facial profiles of the Soldiery portrayed above, especially from various angles (the shown and linked two photos are front view and diagnal-front-left views -- I've seen a clear diagnal-right-above-front too, showing more faces unseen here).

Interesting.
Read somewhere that depictions of females with a single boobie out are only displayed in 2d images,

 -

but not reproduced in 3d statues of the same/similar scene. This seems to contradict that.

Hey alTakruri, are these legal in this thread,

or would you prefer images strictly of wooden models and not items that double in function as brushes, containers, kits, and / or dolls?

Note how the ancient Egyptians of pharaonic times already had a highly developed sense of eroticism. Too bad that her feet broke off meanwhile. I am confident that they would have been a treat.

This was over two thousand years ago and her bottom still looks highly attractive. Who says that old women cannot not look sexy?
Try not to think about that bottom, now that you have seen it! Try!

One of the truly rare events in Egyptology is the discovery of an intact tomb. Among the kings of Egypt, Tut was the only intact tomb found to date. We are pleased to have Dr. Marleen De Meyer present her findings on one such tomb. Since 2002 the University of Leuven (Belgium) has been conducting excavations at the site of Dayr al-Barsha in Middle Egypt. This place was used as a necropolis by the inhabitants of the nearby provincial capital Hermopolis throughout most of ancient Egyptian history. Dayr al-Barsha is most famous for its Middle Kingdom nomarchs’ tombs, including the well-preserved tomb of governor Djehutihotep, but the site also contains a large Old Kingdom rock necropolis. The limestone cliffs are honeycombed with hundreds of small Old Kingdom tombs, some of which preserve traces of decoration. In several of these tombs, a restoration inscription dating to the late First Intermediate Period was carved. What this restoration consisted of, became clear when the intact burial of Henu was found, an administrator serving under a governor named Djehutinakht at the end of the First Intermediate Period. This burial contained not only the perfectly preserved coffin and mummy of the deceased, but also a number of wooden tomb models portraying scenes of daily life in Ancient Egypt.

Good finds Apoco!!

Metjetji, the subject of this statue, is shown in later life, with the long kilt of a senior official and, as viewed from the side, a rather flabby torso. The expensive addition of inlaid stone eyes with copper rims suggests that this one was considered the most important of Metjetji's statues. A large head, big eyes, and very long fingers often appear on statues of this time; here they seem to suggest wisdom and maturity.

* Medium: Wood, gessoed and painted; alabaster, obsidian, copper
* Possible Place Collected: Saqqara, Egypt
* Dates: ca. 2371-2288 B.C.E.
* Dynasty: late V Dynasty-early VI Dynasty
* Period: Old Kingdom

^^He said no racial invectives -- being in Rome (speaking in English), black can be a racial invective when describing people.

It's completely not necessary. Ok, they have a problem. OLD news, it's their problem.

Along with no racial invectives I also pleaded for
limiting each post to just one photo as a bandwidth
consideration.

Example of page loading constraints
6 imagess per post = 300 images to load on a page
1 image per post = 50 images to load on a page
Be kind to the surfer who may have a weak very
slow connection or a minimal feature computer.


Please don't anyone feel put off or offended by
this request. I can't begin to qualify how much
I appreciate each and every image that each
and everyone has posted in this thread.

All your supporting contributions have been
tremendous and I look forward to all your
future offerings expanding on this true
to Egyptology topic.
