This volume displays a treasure trove of ancient Egyptian artifacts from the rarely-seen Myers Collection. Sacred and Profane: Treasures of Ancient Egypt from the Myers Collection highlights over 80 objects, tracing two and a half millennia of life and death in ancient Egypt.
The Myers Collection of Egyptian Art at Eton College is widely-regarded as one of the most important, collections of small Egyptian artifacts in the world, yet the cache of about 3,000 statuettes of mortals and gods, mummy masks, jewellery and cosmetics, pottery, papyri and children's toys has been until now under-researched and unseen. This new volume contributes significantly to the wider scholarship and understanding of this stunning private collection in particular and Egyptian art in general.
