World-class collection 

This exhibition revolves on mummies from world-class collection and explores ancient Egyptian beliefs about the afterlife during the reigns of ancient Greece and Rome.  


The ancient Egyptians believed that death was a temporary interruption and that the deceased could gain eternal life after a special ritual preparation. So when life ended, people were mummified to qualify to be listed with the gods. In ancient Egyptian mythology, gold was considered to symbolize the bodies of gods and goddesses. Ancient Egyptians gilded the bodies of the deceased with golden flesh to express their fascination with immortality. 

The Faiyum mummy imagery has been around for 2000 years. The portrait is painted with hot wax and pigments mixed on a thin wooden board to create a realistic effect that meets modern tastes. It incorporates the ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek visions of eternal beauty, evolving religious concepts and identity formation.

Queen Cleopatra VII was one of the most famous monarchs of the ancient world, known to the world as Cleopatra. According to later accounts, this Egyptian beauty was both wise and beautiful. This exhibition will feature a bronze coin bearing her head and a bracelet of the same model, which will provide a glimpse of this legendary figure.
