Abstract:This dissertation is concerned with the site of Kom el-Nana, an Amarna period structure excavated by Barry Kemp in the Southern Suburb of the ancient city of Tell el-Amarna. Professor Kemp's excavations in the 1980s and 1990s unearthed a quantity of stone fragments that preserved relief decoration. These fragments were preserved in situ from the demolition of the site that took place in the ancient post-Amarna period; they allowed an opportunity to explore not only the content of the decorative scheme but also the nature of the site. Examination of these fragments was undertaken by myself in three excavation seasons at Tell el-Amarna spanning the years of 2005, 2007 and 2008. The methodology involved several approaches. The ancient system of gridding and proportion published by Gay Robins helped to postulate the original height of the royal figures. Their posture and directionality was determined by a study of the rules used to apply the cartouches of the Aten to the bodies of the King and Queen. Analysis of the artistic corpus preserved from the ancient city provided a framework for the scenes. This corpus consisted of talatat preserved from Hermopolis, the royal and nonroyal tombs, excavated statuary and relief, and painted decoration. The scenes reconstructed are examined for relevance to the general iconographic and religious message crafted by Akhenaten regarding the royal family's role and identity. The final chapter is concerned with the identity of the site as well as its place within the larger framework of the cultic and courtly life of the royal family in general and the queen in particular. An analysis of the inscriptional material from Kom el-Nana reveals several references to the site as a Sunshade structure. A review of Kom el-Nana's location, the structures within the complex, correlation with the Early Proclamation on the Boundary Stelae as well as the Maru-Aten reinforce the deduction that the site was the Sunshade of Nefertiti.
