Presented by Dr. Diana Craig-Patch, MET Museum, NYC
Many of the objects in the Met's Egyptian collection are old favorites: William, the blue hippo, the exquisite lips of a queen in yellow jasper, or the graceful models from Meketre's tomb. The stories they tell about ancient Egypt are well known. This presentation shares new narratives developed by The Met's curators as they studied a number of recent acquisitions.
