Item description for Luxor Museum: The Glory of Ancient Thebes by Abeer El-Shahawy...

The Luxor Museum houses a fine collection of Egyptian antiquities that is beautifully exhibited. This illustrated volume highlights some of the masterpieces found in ancient Thebes. There are glorious examples of ancient artifacts from tombs and temples in Karnak and Luxor, and the Deir al-Bahari mummy cache. Middle Kingdom statues depict the pharaohs who made Thebes their political capital and Amun the king of the gods. The New Kingdom brings statues and artifacts from the time of the great pharaohs such as Ahmose, Hatshepsut, and Thutmosis III. Akhenaten and the revolutionary Amarna art, and the famous boy king Tutankhamun, are present too.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luxor Museum: The Glory of Ancient Thebes?

A Nutshell of Thebes  Dec 26, 2007
The Luxor Museum is small but contains many great artifacts of all types. This photographic approach uses some of the finest examples on display to take the reader through the museum in the order of a tourist visit. A plan of the museum is included. The great majority of photos are of free-standing statues in the round, mainly of royals and a few deities. They are superb examples, mostly of the 18th dynasty. Two outstanding figures that merit mention are the seated statue of Tuthmosis III in black granite, and the magnificent and rarely seen alabaster statue of Amenhotep III with the crocodile-headed god Sobek.

There is so much more that could have been included. It's a nice book of 41 limited color photos that could have been a great volume had it depicted more of the awesome artifacts on display.

Will look good on your coffee table.
Just a small taste of what is there.  May 4, 2007
Loved the book and the photographs are exceptional. Not a compliant - but it left me wanting more. It could have been a larger volume - but it is just a tease. Still love it though.
