Although these pieces were commissioned in different time eras, they do share similar qualities and aspects.
Both include religious aspects in terms of their main messages. While the Stela is certainly more of a personal call to the Gods, it does in a detail orientated fashion. Much like the Stela, the winged genii tells religious stories that will be passed down for generations to come. These religious aspects can be seen not only in the text, but the wings that are engraved in both of the artifacts. Wings obviously have a religious conotation as they are often thought of being messengers from the Gods above. These are both very visual artifacts that are able to tell a story in that visual sense.
Another similarity these artifacts share is the detailed pictures. Hieroglyphics are clearly a visual mode of communication but the actual engraving of the scene between father, mother, and son allows for us to have a better understanding of that moment in time. We can almost get a glimpse of facial expressions. With the relief of the winged genii, the visual aspect comes with the small details of the wings, mace, and facial features. This was a piece that needed to seem powerful and the more detail, the better.
The differences also lie within the text.
The Egyptian Stela is a very intimate artifact. We are outsiders looking into a very personal moment between the doctor and his conversation with the Gods. This is a mans last wish and we able to get a quick glance at how it unfolds. I think this text was most likely found in a collection of other Stelas with the main purpose of a memorial, much like how we have in our modern day.
Comparing this to the winged Genii, we have this piece that is tall, dark, dense, powerful, and bold. This is anything but an intimate piece. This artifact wants to tell a literal story of greatness and how the emperor rose to power. The stone itself portrays elegance and excellence
