Limestone relief, with official portraits of Akhenaten and Nefertiti in the style of the later years of their reign. It served as a model by a master-sculptor for the guidance of craftsmen engaged upon royal work, and was found at Amarna by villagers who sold it to the American Egyptologist Charles Edwin Wilbour during his visit to the site in 1881.
