The creator god shown striding on an integrated plinth, left leg advanced, his clenched hands held by his sides, wearing a pleated kilt with narrow belt, braided beard, and the double plumed headdress.

Amun rose to prominence as the king of the Egyptian pantheon during the 11th Dynasty, as evinced by the fact that four Pharaohs of that dynasty took the name Amenemhet or "Amun is pre-eminent." He came to be worshipped as a creator, solar and fertility god, as well as a universal god. He was most often portrayed in human form wearing a short kilt and flat-topped headdress, often surmounted by plumes, as found in this example.
