Details
In this seminar, curatorial fellow Jen Thum will guide participants through the basics of Egyptian representation. Why do bodies “walk like an Egyptian,” and how were objects activated for use in the afterlife? Looking closely at a range of ancient Egyptian artifacts, from limestone reliefs to cosmetic implements and even a model boat, the seminar will explore some of the iconic forms of Egyptian art, as well as the materials and craft technologies that were used to make them.
