The Egyptology Photographers Group is for those interested in photographing Egyptological artifacts, including objects in museums, collections and at digs. Possible topics include discussions of new and interesting equipment and techniques. It is for those seeking assistance and those willing to share the lessons of their defeats.
This is a group for those curious about scribe palettes. Any photos of scribal palettes as well as discussion of materials and construction, differences over time or geography, and inscriptions is greatly appreciated. Feel free to highlight other items in the scribal kit, as well, including reed pens, inkwells, and papyrus burnishers. Let's help bring this often-overlooked type of object to light. After all, we wouldn't have been able to learn about the ancient Egyptians from the writings they left behind on papyri if a scribe had not held this tool in hand.
This major exhibition explores the artistic interplay between the three great cultures of Egypt, Greece, and Rome from about 2000 BC to AD 300. Highlights include finely crafted vessels sent by Egypt’s pharaohs to Crete and Mycenae, Egyptian statues that served as inspiration for the first Greek sculptors, striking portraits blending Egyptian and classical styles, and luxurious objects made for wealthy Romans obsessed with all things Egyptian.
The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting, and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance.
