Item description for The Egyptian Museum in Turin by Eleni Vassilika...
This guidebook presents a sample of the outstanding collections of the only museum other than the Cairo Museum to be dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture. The selection of seventy highlights provides a wide chronological survey, in which royal and private votive and funerary monuments illustrate the changes in the style of Egyptian art over millennia. Many of the major gods, along with some of the lesser-known household deities, and objects derived from funerary and settlement contexts are illustrated. The aim is to offer a broad vision of Egyptian civilisation also through information about technologies, trade, and some historical events.
