    When they were first discovered over a century ago, the painted panel and shroud portraits of Roman Egypt were a revelation to scholars and public alike. Even today they constitute the only corpus of coloured images of individuals to survive from classical antiquity. Many of the paintings are of outstanding artistic quality; as a whole, they reflect a range of techniques and styles, often related to specific communities.Many of the best-known portraits come from the Fayum, but portraits in various media are known from sites in the Nile Valley and along the Mediterranean coast. Here a wide range is presented, showing Roman influence coexisting with traditional Egyptian ways of commemorating the dead.

    Egyptian art from the Pharaonic era is characterized by colossal sphinxeds, elaborately decorated coffins, hieroglyphs, and beautifully modeled reliefs. Less well-know, but equally impressive, are the rare and ancient images of people, animals, and landscapes from the pre-Pharaonic era, the period that preceded and directly influenced these iconic forms of artistic expression. With lavish illustrations of more than 175 fascinating objects created from about 4000 to 2650 BC, Dawn of Egyptian Art presents the origins of these art forms and iconography that remained in use for centuries. Comprehensive texts explore the origins and ealy development of the culture of ancient Egypt while discussing the representation of the self and the universe, the relationship between image and writing, and the early Egyptians' evolving view of how the world worked. Exhibition @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York, 04/04/12-08/05/12. 240 color illustrations. 256p.
  • Death and the Afterlife In Ancient Egypt

    Of all the ancient peoples, the Egyptians are perhaps best known for the fascinating ways in which they grappled with the mysteries of death and the afterlife. This beautifully illustrated book draws on the British Museum's world-famous collection of mummies and other funerary evidence to offer an accessible account of Egyptian beliefs in an afterlife and examine the ways in which Egyptian society responded materially to the challenges these beliefs imposed.The author describes in detail the numerous provisions made for the dead and the intricate rituals carried out on their behalf. He considers embalming, coffins and sarcophagi, shabti figures, magic and ritual, and amulets and papyri, as well as the mummification of sacred animals, which were buried by the millions in vast labyrinthine catacombs.The text also reflects recent developments in the interpretation of Egyptian burial practices, and incorporates the results of much new scientific research. Newly acquired information derives from a range of sophisticated applications, such as the use of noninvasive imaging techniques to look inside the wrappings of a mummy, and the chemical analysis of materials used in the embalming process. Authoritative, concise, and lucidly written, Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt illuminates aspects of this complex, vibrant culture that still perplex us more than 3,000 years later.
