Nefertari

 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.

  3. 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!

  10. The tablets remind me that the Egyptians kept good records. The supposedly captive Israelites of the Old Testament were never there.
