Yep, that's the only even remotely acceptable one I've found...

I think short of commissioning one I might have to make due.

You can always ask someone from the House who sculpts! Also, if you're on Mystic Wicks, talk to TheRedLion (http://mysticwicks.com/member.php?u=38770), He makes AMAZING statuary.

I might be able to draw you one, but it'll take some time. Between work and school, along with an up comming Midterm...

I'll see what I can do then. :) I've been wanting to do a Min drawing for a bit now, but the trouble is finding refrence photos of male full nudes without them looking contrived or...well...like they belong in Playgirl. :P

If you're wanting nudes, best bet is to look into getting a life drawing book. That way, they're just standing there, without any contrivance. YOu could also look into the stock images on deviantart.

Haaaaa! Nice....

I really like this depiction:

Only maybe minus the mummy-ness...

Either way, I can't wait to see what you come up with! Squee!

I've been looking at Manstock on DeviantArt already, as well as a few selected members that are devoted to stock images.

I believe this is Amun, actually; He is shown - hard, holding his part.  The two tale plumes told me.

Of course, I could be wrong, but I'm at least 95% sure it's Amun/Amun-Min...

I'm pretty sure that is just the way Min is shown. I can't recall seeing him depicted any other way in reliefs, amulets, statuary, etc?

The most common depiction seems to be Min-Amun.

You have the feathers of Amun, which were a later addition, but still the upraised hand in the crook (?) depiction which is sorta a hallmark of Min.

I think....it seems..

Most of the representations I've seen of Min have the plumes. Even tho the plumes are usually assoc. with Amun, it doesn't mean that other deities can't make use of them as well. In the end, Min and Amun seem to have been mushed together- making it all the more complicated. The flail held in that manner seems to be very specific to Min.
