Abstract

The deformation which affects the physiognomy of colossal sculptures of the New Kingdom suggests that Ancient Egyptian Art could have taken into account the parallax effects or distortions due to perspective. This question and its methodological and theoretical implications are investigated, with a special focus on the colossi of Amenhotep IV from Karnak.
