"I recommend this book highly to all others as well; for, the
insightful comments that Baines presents challenge us with a method
of interpretation that can only lead to much fruitful discussion of
Egyptian iconographic forms." - JARCE Fecundity figures,
personifications of non-sexual fertility, played a significant role
in ancient Egyptian religious art. This detailed and comprehensive
investigation of Egyptian iconography during the Old and New
Kingdoms aims to classify the types of male and female figures
represented, and so understand the artistsAe intentions whilst also
placing the artwork within its cultural, religious and artistic
context. In addition, the study incorporates a theoretical and
general discussion of the form and function of personifications.
