Product Details

The artist develops a special theme dear to Nebamun as lord of his surroundings, a fowling scene in the marshes of his estate. The Osiris Nebamun is standing on a light boat and, in perfect balance, captured birds in one hand and throw-stick in the other, proceeds to enter into the thicket of papyrus where some birds have already noticed the intention of the intruder, while others tend to their nests on top of the flowers. Nebamun is not alone. Between his feet we see the small figure of his daughter, seated with one arm grabbing the strong leg of his father for protection, while picking lotus flowers. The child has no intention of being witness to the killing his father is about to commit and thus turns her head in the opposite direction where her mother, standing at the stern, seems passive but aware of the entire event. Her figure is poised as a second axis parallel to that of her husband, bringing perfect equilibrium to the composition. The fact that she is dressed as if to attend a formal banquet, while her husband is wearing a princely collar and fine kilt, betrays the fact that this scene is not an accurate representation of the sport, but a blissful recreation for the deceased, so he may be accompanied by his family as he wishes it to be forever in the afterlife. What is truly remarkable about this masterpiece of the Egyptian style is the design, the proper arrangement of the elements in harmonious proportion where the interaction of positive and negative space reinterprets the arcane rules of hieratic representation and converts it into a living expression of shape, color, drawing and texture. Every element of the composition plays within the setting as a "perfect picture moment". We can tell we are close to the end of the breeding season. A few birds are still sitting on the nests they have built on the papyrus reeds swayed by the winds, while others are flying about seeking food for their young. The cat is looking up to his master with a captured bird in its mouth, the large butterflies flutter wildly about the place, as the fish swim calmly unperturbed. The integration of the hieroglyphic characters with the composition is absolutely brilliant. Size:24 inches x 17 inches
