Egyptian stela from the British Museum’s Ancient Lives touring exhibition.
Limestone funerary stela of Tryphon: relief representation of a praying youth with raised arms and two jackals within a portico. The stela is well preserved, with traces of red paint on the boy’s hair and towards the base of the scene. The background has a brown deposit which may represent a wash or coating of the stone.
The youth is shown frontally in the centre of the stela, his arms raised with palms out-turned in a gesture often associated with prayer (orans), but also intelligible as a sign of joy at acceptance by Osiris in the afterlife.
His hair is cut straight in Roman fashion, with a wave at the front recalling the style of the Emperor Nero. Beneath the scene is an inscription crudely carved in two lines of Greek.
