Relief of the crowned head of Akhenaten, Ancient Egyptian, Amarna period, c1350-1334 BC

Relief of the crowned head of Akhenaten, Ancient Egyptian, Amarna period, c1350-1334 BC. After he ascended to the throne in c1350 BC Akhenaten set about transforming the religion of Ancient Egypt, replacing the existing polytheism with a monotheistic cult of worshipping Aten, the god of the disc of the Sun. In addition, he decreed that Egypt's capital was to be moved from Thebes to a new site 180 miles to the north, to be named Akhetaten (modern El-Amarna). These massive upheavals generated growing opposition to Akhenaten, particularly amongst the priesthood. In c1334 BC Akhenaten died and Egypt turned its back on his reforms. The city of Akhetaten was abandoned and Egyptians returned to worshipping their traditional gods. From the Royal Athena Gallery, New York

Nefertiti worshipping the Aten, 18th Dynasty, Ancient Egypt, c1352-1336 BC. Detail of a relief. One of Aten's rays ends in a human hand that offers the queen the ankh symbol of life in return. Nefertiti supported her husband, the Pharaoh Akhenaten, in his monotheistic religion worshipping the Aten, a previously obscure god representing the disc of the Sun. After Akhenaten's death, Egypt quickly reverted to its traditional polytheistic religion. From the Brooklyn Museum, New York
