Coming back to the Queens of Egypt exhibit at the Museum of History today. This video projection of ancient Egypt would be reflected in the display cases I would photograph below it.
Items below included a statue of the cat goddess Bastet, a double tray, and other items typical of the dressing table of a woman in the harems of ancient Egypt.
Carnelian necklaces of the New Kingdom caught my eye.
Other items displayed: a vase in the shape of a baboon, a spoon, or a comb, are seen here. Tomorrow we conclude our look at this exhibit.
That necklace is stunning.ReplyDelete
All the necessary things 😊ReplyDelete
A very unique necklace. Have a great day.ReplyDelete
I bought a lot of jewelry there ! Unique and cheap ! Silver and half precious stones are really a bargain there !ReplyDelete

Those necklaces steal the show today.ReplyDelete
...jewelry has held a special place in society through the ages.ReplyDelete
You flexed your photographic skill here, William.ReplyDelete
El gusto de la mujer por adornarse, bien desarrollado estaba en esos tiempos. El valor de las joyas, dependía de su posición social.ReplyDelete
Those necklaces were quite something.ReplyDelete
Again the video projections would have been fascinating to watch William 💜ReplyDelete
I love seeing these tiny things that once meant something to someone.ReplyDelete
@Linda: quite so.ReplyDelete
@Nancy: thank you.
@Gattina: I can imagine.
@Jan: they do.
@Mirada: thank you.
@Marie: they were.
@Grace: they were a good touch.
@Sharon: me too.
It is eerie in a way to see items we wear today, knowing a person wore similar thousands of years ago. Nice photosReplyDelete
Such lovely little objects from everyday life.ReplyDelete

Yes, a very striking necklace.ReplyDelete
@Maywyn: I agree.ReplyDelete
@Jennifer: and a lot of it.
@Carol: very much so.
Lizzie's all about the cat goddess!ReplyDelete
Such tiny beads!ReplyDelete
I'm wondering how those beads retained their color or if the museum restored it? So dynamic!ReplyDelete
I suppose it depends on how they were found. Were they sealed in a box, for instance?Delete
I'm betting the carnelian necklace really stood out, probably was a very vibrant bright red.ReplyDelete
The necklace is so intricate and beautiful:)ReplyDelete
I would love to see this, looks like another magnificent exhibit.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed it.Delete
I do like the Carnelian necklaces.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
