A Woman’s Role in Ancient Egypt  –  (Julie Chellingsworth)

Goddesses of Ancient Egypt were held in very high esteem, depicting them widely in human and animal art form on the sarcophagi and mummies of Ancient Egyptian Kings – to assist their departure into the Afterlife.

 

 

Image and Meaning in Ancient Egypt – (Lesley Sams)

I am intrigued by the rich world view embedded in the seemingly simple visual record left by the Ancient Egyptians of their world and environment, and the layers of meaning encompassed in the elegance of their line and design.

 

This exhibition will run from July 1st through to August 28th
