On Sunday 10th December at 7p.m. Dr. Campbell Price, Curator of Egypt and Sudan, Manchester Museum, University of Manchester, UK will give a lecture entitled: "Perfected forms: The Functions of Late Period Non-Royal Sculpture"
Non-royal statuary of the Egyptian Late Period (c. 750-300 BCE) has been the subject of intense art historical and genealogical interest. However, texts the statues carry - and the forms of the statues themselves - also give an insight into how they were conceptualised to function within temple space. This lecture reviews evidence for the dedication, placement and meaning of the statues in context, particularly with reference to the temple complex of Karnak.
