Egyptian bronze statuary has proven particularly intractable to chronological investigations. This study exploits clues offered by bronze royal statuettes to make identifications or stylistic assignments. A fuller understanding of the artistic milieu and role of small royal bronze statuary results.

Ancient Egyptian bronze sculpture appears in many major European and North American museum collections, but its inadequate study makes the sculpture very difficult to analyze. The aim of the present study is to analyze and organize the corpus of priestly bronze statuary, a rather large subgroup of non-royal ancient Egyptian bronze statuary. To this end, the author utilizes several factors intrinsic to each three-dimensional figure: epigraphical, stylistical, contextual, and technical, to show the temporal development of the ancient Egyptian priest and priestly figure in bronze. With this study the author provides a foundation for further study in the area of non-royal bronze statuary in general and a clearer view of the artistic contribution of priestly bronze statuary in particular, as well as a better understanding of the role and development of priestly bronze statuary.

This study takes a multifaceted approach and is dependent on the available epigraphical, archaeological/contextual, and art historical evidence. The inscribed, dated and provenanced bronze figures that I investigated establish a chronological framework with which to examine the temporal aspect of the unprovenanced bronzes of the corpus. The size of the sculpture, style, technique, method of manufacture, frequency of production, and details of individual pieces are all features that I investigate for each object. In addition, I utilize several types of secondary sources to assist with dating the unprovenanced figures, i.e., two- and three-dimensional sources from the Egyptian artistic record.
