Beware ! The Egyptian Museum in Cairo has decided to ban camera's . Not so the good old British Museum, where visitors receive a warm welcome by enjoying the freedom of taking pictures. Here you see some pictures that I recently made of the Nebamon exposition in the British Museum, London.

Nebamun was an Egyptian "scribe and counter of grain" during the New Kingdom. His tomb in Thebes, the location of which is now lost, featured the famous Pond in a Garden false fresco painting.

Nebamun's name is translated as "My Lord is Amun" and he is thought to have lived c. 1500 bc. The paintings were hacked from the tomb wall and purchased by a British collector who in turn sold them to the British Museum in 1821. The collector died in poverty without ever revealing the source location of the paintings. The depictions are highly symbolic and thematically related to a joyful afterlife.

In 2009 the British Museum opened up a new gallery dedicated to the display of the restored eleven wall fragments from Nebamun's tomb, described as one of the Museum's greatest treasures. (Source: Wikipedia EncyclopediA)

Queridos todos. Os envío información (en inglés) sobre una exposición en el National Museum of Singapore:

"Quest for Immortality - The World of Ancient Egypt"


Un abrazo y feliz fin de semana para todos.

Mummy M.

Presented by National Museum of Singapore, in co-operation with Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, Egyptian and Near Eastern Department
Exhibition Galleries 1 & 2, Basement
TUE 22 DEC 2009 - SUN 4 APR 2010 10:00am - 6:00pm

The ancient Egyptian world is often characterised by a fascinating and remarkably supple mental universe. Ancient Egyptians melded images in ways that often beggar logic. They linked material elements with a realm inaccessible to humans, as reflected both in their daily conduct and their emphasis on the afterlife that led to their quest for immortality.

Quest for Immortality – The World of Ancient Egypt offers an insight to the ancient Egyptian’s attitude to life and the afterlife, and the preparations they made to ensure their transition from earthly existence to immortality. Discover the Egyptians’ means of equipping the dead – through mummification, provision of sustenance, magic and ritual – and explore the evolution of their burial rites as well as the changing relationship between man and ritual through time.

With 230 artefacts spanning from 4000 BCE to 950 CE, this exhibition endeavours to place tomb objects in their social, religious and artistic context, demonstrating the diversity and adaptability of an art that has prevailed in both time and space.
