Les statues égyptiennes du Nouvel Empire au Louvre : une synthèse

Abstract : The Louvre Museum keeps 302 Egyptian statues of the New Kingdom. Such a collection is rich enough to obtain some results which should be transposable to the complete Egyptian statuary of the period. The present work is dealing with this corpus from two angles. First, quantitative and qualitative analysis according to modern criteria. Second, attempt of analysis according to ancient Egyptian criteria, explicits and implicits. These last ones can particularly be deduced from the relations between two dimensional images, which are issued from the writing, and their transcription in volume, in other words the statuary. Then it is found that the conception of statuary is based on fundamental aspects of mobility and immobility, of action and inaction and, generally speaking, that it corresponds to aspective rules so characteristic of Egyptian thought, with the frequent manifestation of the perspective point of view which is superimposed to these basic rules.
