KINGS, QUEENS AND GODDESSES AT THE WINDOW

Madeleine Mumcuoglu, Yosef Garfinkel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper discusses windows in New Kingdom Egypt, the Iron Age Levant and Rhodes, and Persian-era Magnesia-on-the-Meander and Ephesus. One side of the window represents royal or divine powers, while the other side represents courtiers or humble believers. There is a clear hierarchy in these situations, and the window serves as the mediator between mighty powers and daily life. Thus, the window became a cultic entity unto itself, sometimes depicted without the anthropomorphic figure.
