"Eternal Egypt: Masterworks of Ancient Art

This is coming to the ROM at the end of February. I'm definitely going to check this out:

"Eternal Egypt: Masterworks of Ancient Art from The British Museum" is
a comprehensive exhibition mounted from one of the world's most outstanding Egyptian art collections. "Eternal Egypt" illustrates the development and achievements of ancient Egyptian art over more than three thousand years, from the pre-Dynastic to the Roman Periods (c.3100 B.C. to A.D. 170). Concentrating on splendid objects from the Middle and New Kingdoms and the Late Period, the exhibition's diverse works include mummy masks, coffins and other funerary items, sculpture and relief, papyri, ostraca (pottery shards used as writing surfaces), jewellery and cosmetic objects. Made possible by rebuilding at The British Museum that required the temporary removal of these objects from display, the exhibition boasts 144 exceptional artifacts, some of which have never before left the British Museum or have not been exhibited for years.



For those of you who have also been a little disappointed with the ROM's current Ancient Egyptian collection, this will definitely be for you!

I wonder what the people of Egypt get out of this tour, or are these just the cultural artifacts that the British Museum pillaged from Egypt...

In the early days of archaeology people took artifacts back to England as souveniers. Howard Carter has taken much of what is in the British Museum today. I don't think Egypt would donate artifacts to museums around the world.

I am actually really looking forward to this. I haven't been to the ROM in years and this seems like the perfect chance! I have been waiting for something really cool to come along! Thanks for the tip!

I get goose bumps just being around Egyptian Artifacts so I'll be there for sure! Also, if anyone is interested, SSEA (Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities) is having a lecture this wednesday at 7 pm by Nigel Strudwick discussing the finds in the tomb that he has been excavating in Egypt. More information is found at http://www.geocities.com/ssea.geo* <- less the asterisk. Would anyone like to go with me...maybe Dan? It is a free event.

Also if anyone is interested, there is an Egyptian related group with Yale that lets you receive email discussions on topics related to research and general questions on Ancient Egypt. I'll send you a link to sign up!

I was referring more to personal collectors, but I don't think its completely improbable for Egypt to donate small pieces.

Choochy, i'd love to attend that lecture. Shoot me a pm. :)
