Beschreibung"I recommend this book highly to all others as well; for, the insightful comments that Baines presents challenge us with a method of interpretation that can only lead to much fruitful discussion of Egyptian iconographic forms." - JARCE Fecundity figures, personifications of non-sexual fertility, played a significant role in ancient Egyptian religious art. This detailed and comprehensive investigation of Egyptian iconography during the Old and New Kingdoms aims to classify the types of male and female figures represented, and so understand the artistsAe intentions whilst also placing the artwork within its cultural, religious and artistic context. In addition, the study incorporates a theoretical and general discussion of the form and function of personifications.
PortraitJohn Baines is Professor of Egyptology, University of Oxford. he has also translated Heinrich Schafer's Principles of Egyptian Art.
