Head of a Cow
From the tomb of Amenhotep II, this wooden sculpture is evidence of the importance of cattle to the ancient Egyptians. The animals served as beasts of burden and food sources and even lent their features to several gods.
The exhibition is on display from November 4, 2004, through May 1, 2005, at the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle (Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany) in Bonn, Germany
