Offerings for Eternity in Ancient Egypt: a Question of Survival
From Saturday, October 08 2011 to Sunday, March 04 2012
Louvre - DNP Museum Lab, a joint project led by the musée du Louvre and Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd (DNP) that seeks to investigate new approaches to art viewing, has chosen, as the theme of its eighth presentation, to explore Egyptian Antiquities, one of the most popular departments in the musée du Louvre and a subject with many enthusiasts in Japan.
Focusing on a selection of works that illustrate the principle of funerary offerings, an essential ritual in ancient Egypt, a visitor circuit comprising seven multimedia resources offers a hands-on experience for discovering and understanding the aesthetics and vision specific to this civilization for around three millennia. Two of the multimedia resources developed for this presentation will be later relocated to the permanent exhibition rooms of the Department of Egyptian Antiquities in the Musée du Louvre in Paris.
