This chapter considers the difficulties of dating uninscribed and unprovenanced ancient Egyptian sculpture, by examining stylistic characteristics. The author explores this issue through the example of a small three-dimensional head, which he compares to an inscribed relief representation and thus dates to the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. He seeks to demonstrate the importance of art history in Egyptology, making the case for it as a principle tool for study of this field.
