Experience Nubia's insight:

This gold and carnelian necklace, an artifact from Ancient Nubia, is on view now at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts's newly opened exhibition Gold & The Gods: Jewels of Ancient Nubia. The necklace features 54 gold pendants molded into the forms of a woman wearing the White Crown of Egypt and a ram's head wearing a double uraeus and sun disk. The ram's head is most certainly a representation of the mighty god Amani.

Experience Nubia's insight:

"The most important of the God's Wives are buried at Medinet Habu.
"These were very very powerful women who represented both political and religious power. They ruled Egypt as kings."

"These women were from Nubia; from what is today Sudan and under their rule they re-unified Egypt and ushered in a period of Renaissance in arts and culture and politics that lasted for over 500 years."

Creating Private Sector Jobs is the Surest Path to Boosting Shared Prosperity in Egypt

Egypt has been plagued for many years by low-quality, insecure and unstable jobs but this can be reversed through reforms aimed at vitalizing the private sector, promoting formal employment, and engaging excluded and vulnerable populations.
Experience Nubia's insight:
The World Bank’s portfolio in Egypt includes 26 projects for a total commitment of US$5.5 billion. The World Bank finances projects for faster delivery of benefits to the people of Egypt in key sectors including energy, transport, water and sanitation, agriculture and irrigation as well as health and education.
