Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

The ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the cen­tral po­si­tion of fe­male deities in the an­cient Egyp­tian pan­theon and the key roles played by women of the royal fam­ily.

Ob­jects cre­ated for Hat­shep­sut, one of the few an­cient Egyp­tian women

to rule as pharaoh, are high­lighted. The works of art are drawn ex­clu­sively from the Met’s renowned Egyp­tian art col­lec­tion. An ear­lier show­ing of the ex­hi­bi­tion took place at the Tokyo Metropoli­tan Art Mu­seum. The ex­hi­bi­tion

was or­ga­nized by The Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art in col­lab­o­ra­tion with The Asahi Shim­bun.
