Wooden Statues of the Old Kingdom Feb 22, 2006
This large volume includes a typological study of wooden statues from the Old Kingdom period. About 240 wooden statues survive from the Old Kingdom (2575 - 2134 BC). The statues that can be dated by external criteria are gathered together into a chronologic group and their features studied to establish dating criteria. The criteria are then applied to the remaining statues, enabling many of them to be assigned dates within individual reigns of the Old Kingdom.
Group A include those statues that can be dated by external criteria, group B are dated by association with features in A, group C are dated according to group B and group D includes other examples. Comparisons are made between various features of the statues including coiffure, dress, arms, standing versus striding stance, their location in tombs and their geographical distribution.
