Statue of the God Amun and his wife the Goddess Mut, Luxor, Egypt

Statue of the God Amun and his wife the Goddess Mut in the Temple at Luxor, Egypt. Amun and Mut were two gods in the Theban Triad, a cult of the Royal Ka, to whom the temple was dedicated.  Their son Khonsu was the third god in the triad. Thebes (which lies under the modern city of Luxor) was the capital of Egypt during much of the New Kingdom (c. 1550–1050 BCE). Due to its importance as both a religious and urban center, Thebes became the home to many of ancient Egypt’s most famous monuments. It encompassed both the city of Thebes on east bank of the Nile as well as the Valley of Kings and the Valley of Queens on the west bank of the Nile. Thebes was the home of the god Amun.
