Description:
This is the first exhibition to be devoted entirely to the approximate five centuries of the Old Kingdom. One of its notable qualities is that it restores our temporal perspective. In doing so, it demonstrates the extraordinary flowering of the arts at the time the pyramids were built, when not only architecture, but sculpture, painting, and the decorative arts were at their peak.
