Members Only Preview - Queen Nefertari's Egypt at the Kimbell

Took a vacation day last Friday so Ray and I could enjoy the members only Kimbell Art Museum's exhibit - Queen Nefertari's Egypt. 
This is a celebration of women - goddesses, queens, and artisans in the New Kingdom period (c.  1539 - 1075 BCE). Queen Nefertari ("Beautiful companion ") was a celebrated favorite wife of Pharaoh Ramesses II.  The Queen's tomb was found in 1904 in the Valley of the Queens - a significant discovery. The exhibit sheds light on palace life, roles of women in ancient Egypt, the work  of artisans, and insight into the belief system/ritual practices of death and the afterlife.

Ray is reading about ancient tomb coverings. The colors and preservation is amazing to see
Funerary stelae - decorated stone slab depicting the deceased receiving offerings to sustain them in the afterlife. 
There was so much to see and read - The exhibition covered  1. Pharaohs,  Goddesses, and the Temple. 

2. Women in Ancient Egypt   3. Deir el-Medina - the Worker's Village 4. The Afterlife  5. Queen Nefertari's tomb  6. Egyptian Tombs. 

Statues, jewelry, carvings, elaborate coffins, and scrolls of history. I know I need to read and research a LOT to learn more and appreciate this aspect of history. I have a goal for 2021, and I'll need to try to go back  to the exhibit before it leaves in March.

  2. Hi Joanne - that's great you can get back to see the exhibition again before it closes. There's so much to learn about the Egyptian dynasties and Egypt itself.

    Was there a book to accompany it? That'll make interesting reading I'd expect ... or perhaps a very good Museum guide to it.

    Wonderful to see - and obviously you thoroughly enjoyed ... Ray's project sounds interesting ... good for you both - Hilary

  9. Many people are afraid of asking for help. Some of them are consistently a little modest while the others feel embarrassed in such cases. Those mental elements lead to disappointments in any circles of human movement including training. Students accept that they would preferred get an awful imprint over depending on the help of an assignment writing administration. The substantiates truth is that such organizations are regularly connected with cheating: probably, you simply request and purchase the paper and writers are accomplishing practically everything for you. In a university, it is frowned upon and considered a total unfairness.
