So I have already given away that I am impressed by the statue in that last paragraph: it truly is stunning and probably the first massive statue of a Netjer to be produced since Kemetic times. Even as I recall various movies that had impressive sets over the years, I am certain that nothing on this scale of a Netjer was produced.
When the statues and images of Netjer were created in Ancient times they were created to specifications that did not permit "interpretation" over time - this is why for most of Kemetic history the images in tombs and temples and those expressed through sculpture remained essentially the same, with the most notable changes occuring after Alexander the Great moved in.
I think this was more than limiting an artists "licence" and had much more to do with accurately capturing the image or essence of the Netjer in the piece in question. When I see modern interpretations of Netjer, I will look for "giveaways" like the kinds of crowns, sceptres or gesture that they are portrayed with, but more so I get a feeling for wether Netjer can inhabit or live through the piece at hand.
