'Ear Stelae'

'Ear Stelae'
Ear stelae are typical for the New Kingdom (about 1550-1069 BC). On each is shown one or several ears. Some of them are uninscribed, others give a short inscription and/or show the dedicator. The god mentioned on the stela is sometimes called sDm nHt -'who hears prayers'. The ear is therefore the ear of the god and should support the attention of the god to people.
