Pharaohs of the Sun: Akenaten, Nefertiti, Tutankhamen
06 Apr 2002
Freed, Markowitz, D'Aria (ed.s)
What: The catalog from the museum show
of the same name. Articles about the Amarna period of
Ancient Egypt accompanied by lots of very nice photos of
artifacts in the exhibit.
Where: Chapters, Waterloo
When: End of January, 2000
Why: Consolation prize. I'd been so
caught up in the "Egypt In The Age of the
Pyramids" show that's coming to the ROM this spring,
that I completely failed to do anything about visiting
this show during its stay at the Museum Of Fine Arts,
Boston. On the day I realized it would be over in about
10 days, I tried to find a way to get me to Boston, but
the only flight I could get would more than pay for a
root canal, and so I bailed. I picked up the book so that
I would at least feel as if I had been there.
And then, while reading the
introduction, it said that the exhibit would be traveling
on to Chicago in the Spring/Summer. It's not too late!
The spirits did it all in one night! (Of course they can;
they can do anything they like.)
