The Egyptians Are Coming!

Today marks the opening of the latest special exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art... a show entitled "Pharoah".  The exhibit will feature 157 pieces of ancient Egyptain statuary (some monumental in size) and jewelry which portray the rulers of that civilization and the deities that were associated with them. 

Our museum has a noteworthy collection of Egyptian art, but the show was prepared in collaboration with one of the greatest archaeological museums in the world, the British Museum in London.  Ninety percent of the works are from that prestigious institution.

The exhibition is a part of our museum's centennial celebration and will run until June 12th.  I already have plans to attend with a friend later this month.
