I left off yesterday with Queen Tuya, mother of Ramses II. This panel looks into more about her.
Here we have fragments including hieroglyphs.
These are fragments of what might have been a sedan chair, thought to carry a statue of the deified queen Ahmose-Nefertari.
There was a space set inside with artifacts, a display space for items from the tomb of Nefertari, the favourite wife of Ramses.
Small artifacts were displayed in the walls: jewelry, jars, and figurines.
This included a replica of the capstone for her sarcophagus.
It must be so exciting to make such finds. How perfectly this is made!ReplyDelete
A legendary queen.ReplyDelete
Great exhibit, I like the jar and figurines.ReplyDelete
Take care, enjoy your day!
I think that if all the Egyptian artifacts present in museums and galleries around the world were repatriated to Egypt, they would need to build a whole new facility there to house them!ReplyDelete
It really is a wonderful exhibition William ✨ReplyDelete
@Iris: imagine being the guy who found the tomb of Tut.ReplyDelete
@Eileen: I like them as well.
@David: they have built a new museum at Giza. I would like to see it some day.
@Grace: I enjoyed it.
The details on those panels are really intricate. I'm enjoying this series.ReplyDelete
The hieroglyphics are fascinating!ReplyDelete
...I agree with David M. Gascoigne!ReplyDelete
I like those hieroglyphs, they are always intriguing.ReplyDelete
The tablets remind me that the Egyptians kept good records. The supposedly captive Israelites of the Old Testament were never there.ReplyDelete
Wonderful to see these fascinating things, William.ReplyDelete
Such wonderful history posts ~ReplyDelete
