During the Amarna period, artists used a new style of representation that reflected aspects of the new theology. Occasionally they portrayed the king with exaggerated body features, such as swollen hips, rounded thighs, and elongated facial features. They also depicted other royal figures similarly, making it difficult sometimes to differentiate the king and queen. This royal head with a short wig may be either ruler.
