Module 3 Discussion: Egyptian Culture Prompt: To what extent did artistic representations of the Pharaoh remain consistent from the Old to the end of the New Kingdom in Egypt? Provide three examples of characteristics that changed or remained the same to illustrate your point. While the New and Old Kingdom were, for the broad part, very similar in their artistic representations of the Pharaohs, for example, in the colossal statues from different pharoahs of each era (see The Seated Statue of King Djoser (Links to an external site.) from ca. 2686-2613 BC and the Colossal Statue of Amenhotep III (Links to an external site.) from ca. 1390–1353 B.C), there was one period of the New Kingdom in which art of the Pharoah undertook a major shift: The Armana Period. Under the rule of Akhenaton, Egyptian art experienced a dramatic shift in the depiction of humans (including the Pharaoh), possibly spurred on by the Pharaoh's "heretic" worship of the Sun Disk Aton.
