Fragment of alabaster from Amarna with partial scene of the royal family worshipping the Aten. The figure at the left is probably Nefertiti. The Aten holds an ankh sign to her nose, and her wig is decorated by an uraeus. To the right, in front of the queen, is the shoulder of the king. There is a streamer trailing down from his now missing crown, and his right arm is raised, probably worshipping the Aten to the right.
