Egypt-actus's insight:
Saturday 16 March to Sunday 21 July 2013
Bristol Museum and Art Gallery

 

Pharaoh: King of Egypt presents the splendour and power of the ancient kings and queens in this major touring exhibition from the British Museum.

Encounter life-size statues and sculptures from royal palaces, beautifully carved stone reliefs from ancient temples and intricate jewellery and papyri.

While many of the surviving objects project the image pharaoh wanted us to see, the exhibition invites you to explore the realities and challenges of ruling this dynamic and unique civilisation.

After a blockbuster tour around the UK, this is the final chance to see these amazing treasures outside of London. Don’t miss out!

With thanks to Brewin Dolphin, Exhibition Sponsor. 

Pharaoh: King of Egypt is supported through the generosity of the Dorset Foundation.

The exhibition has been developed in a partnership between Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums and the British Museum.

La mise au jour récente de la momie du pharaon "Senebkay", qui a gouverné l'Egypte au XVIIe s. av.J.-C., permet aux archéologues d'en apprendre davantage sur cette période de l'histoire de l'Egypte.

An archaeological mission discovered the tomb in Abydos, Sohag, Upper Egypt, Egyptian Minister of State for Antiquities Mohammed Ibrahim said in January.

"The discovery is of great importance because of the dearth of information on [the Abydos dynasty], which ruled Egypt during that time," said Cairo University pharaonic antiquities professor Niazi Ali.

A translation of hieroglyphics found on the royal cartouche, a stone placed inside the burial chamber, revealed the pharaoh's name, he said.

This name had not appeared in the past in any archaeological excavation or in historical references to the pharaonic dynasties, and experts hope the new discovery will shed light on the chronology of the kings of that period, he said.

Abydos was the capital of the eighth nome -- an ancient administrative division -- of Upper Egypt, and is one of the most important historical Egyptian religious sites as it includes 10 temples belonging to the 26 dynasties in addition to the royal tombs of many of Egypt's kings, Ali said.

Senebkay was a king during the Abydos dynasty, which ruled Egypt in the Second Intermediate Period, a time when Egypt was divided into multiple kingdoms and economic conditions were poor, he said.

"These new discoveries confirm this theory, as there were no gifts or precious jewellery with the skeletal remains, as was customary in providing the late king with funerary furniture, with the exception of a jar that contained the viscera, commonly known as a canopic jar," he said.

Pharaohs and Their Masks in Cuba

Pharaohs and Their Masks in Cuba | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Pinar del Río, Cuba, Jan 16 (Prensa Latina) Inspired in the splendor of ancient Egyptian civilization, the Phidias project recreates masks of well-known pharaohs, papiroes and emblematic hieroglyphs, art that in Cuba recalls Tutankhammon, Cleopatra VII y Ramsés II.

Egypt-actus's insight:

We had the dream of paying tribute to the legacy of the land of the pyramids, monumental temples, obelisques and recall some of their legendary kings during several periods, declared artisan Pedro Loaces, coordinator of the creative group to Prensa Latina.

The most popular image of Tutankhammon "his funeral mask" identifies the Pharaoh, recently opened cabaret in this city. There it is possible to appreciate reproductions of typical writing of that culture, made on stone and vases used in ancient Egypt.

At the beginning, the idea surprised some people, but it refers to the universal heritage we all should take in, as residents in Pinar del Rio are more than field and tobacco, insisted the artist in his dialogue with Prensa Latina, as he explained the origin of the unique proposal.

The discovery of the Tutankhammon tomb almost intact, he added, was an astounding find and we decided to recreate the pharaoh's casket where the young king was buried (18th Dynasty), work which can already be appreciated inside the cabaret.

Paintings of Cleopatra VII are also included in the place's decoration, pieces preceded by rigorous research into this culture, he assured.

Located 90 miles west of Havana, this night club offers good music, but also we try to familiarize people with the magic of that remote civilization of North Africa.

The Phidias Project has worked for over a decade, named after the famous Greek sculptor, has more than 100 members, among them masons, forgers, ceramists and sculptors.

The Milanes Theater, main hall of the western Cuban province and one of the first to be built in Latin America, was one of the structures that benefited most from its restoration actions and sells sculptures and other creations in Brazil, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, the United States and Canada.
