✏Hidden Treasures Of The Egyptian Museum On Hundred Masterpieces From The Centennial Exhibition Book Summary : The Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the greatest repository of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world, receives hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. But many of its treasures, long kept in basement storerooms or in magazines at archaeological sites around the country, or recently discovered at ongoing excavations, have never been seen by the general public. To celebrate the centenary of the Museum, many of these unknown pieces of exquisite beauty or great historical importance--and often both--have been brought out of the darkness to form a unique exhibition in a very appropriate setting: a converted section of the great basement storerooms of the Museum. With some 250 artifacts from the earliest beginnings of pharaonic culture to its latest flowerings, the exhibition spans the whole of ancient Egyptian history, and the one hundred masterpieces beautifully photographed for this volume represent the whole range of the exhibition: the Predynastic Period, the Old Kingdom, the First Intermediate Period, the Middle Kingdom, the Second Intermediate Period, the New Kingdom, the Third Intermediate Period, and the Late Period. This handsome book will serve as a prized memento for visitors to the exhibition and as a window onto it for Egyptophiles everywhere.

✏Ancient Egypt Transformed Book Summary : The Middle Kingdom (ca. 2030–1650 B.C.) was a transformational period in ancient Egypt, during which older artistic conventions, cultural principles, religious beliefs, and political systems were revived and reimagined. Ancient Egypt Transformed presents a comprehensive picture of the art of the Middle Kingdom, arguably the least known of Egypt’s three kingdoms and yet one that saw the creation of powerful, compelling works rendered with great subtlety and sensitivity. The book brings together nearly 300 diverse works— including sculpture, relief decoration, stelae, jewelry, coffins, funerary objects, and personal possessions from the world’s leading collections of Egyptian art. Essays on architecture, statuary, tomb and temple relief decoration, and stele explore how Middle Kingdom artists adapted forms and iconography of the Old Kingdom, using existing conventions to create strikingly original works. Twelve lavishly illustrated chapters, each with a scholarly essay and entries on related objects, begin with discussions of the distinctive art that arose in the south during the early Middle Kingdom, the artistic developments that followed the return to Egypt’s traditional capital in the north, and the renewed construction of pyramid complexes. Thematic chapters devoted to the pharaoh, royal women, the court, and the vital role of family explore art created for different strata of Egyptian society, while others provide insight into Egypt’s expanding relations with foreign lands and the themes of Middle Kingdom literature. The era’s religious beliefs and practices, such as the pilgrimage to Abydos, are revealed through magnificent objects created for tombs, chapels, and temples. Finally, the book discusses Middle Kingdom archaeological sites, including excavations undertaken by the Metropolitan Museum over a number of decades. Written by an international team of respected Egyptologists and Middle Kingdom specialists, the text provides recent scholarship and fresh insights, making the book an authoritative resource.

✏6 gyptologische Tempeltagung Book Summary : Die Analyse agyptischer Tempel konzentriert sich zumeist auf Wandreliefs, wahrend die Bedeutung und der Gebrauch der dekorierten (und undekorierten) Raume oft unklar bleiben. Die Beitrage in diesem 6. Tempeltagungsband, die auf eine 2002 in Leiden gehaltene Konferenz zuruckgehen, beziehen sich auf verschiedene Weise auf die Funktion altagyptischer Tempelraume, die von den Stiftern und Baumeisternbeabsichtigte Funktion und den tatsachlichen Gebrauch im Laufe der Zeit. Angaben zur Raumfunktion liefern uns zum Einen die Wandreliefs und Inschriften; zum Andern erweitern neue Ausgrabungen unsere Kenntnisse uber die verschiedenen Aktivitaten im Tempelbereich. Auch Texte auf Papyri und Objekte geben wichtige Hinweise uber die Funktion der heiligen Raume. Die vorgestellten Tempel, Szenen und Texte gehoren zu verschiedenen Abschnitten der pharaonischen, ptolemaischen, romischen und meroitischen Perioden. Die insgesamt 17 Beitrage sind reich illustriert; die dreisprachigen Indizes enthalten Stichworter, Gotter- und Konigsnamen, Toponyme, Museumsnummern und agyptische Worter.
