2009 Rewind: E for Egypt

EGYPT The much anticipated “World of the Pharaohs: Treasures of Egypt,” which cost nearly $2 million dollars and spans 3,000 years, lived up to its hype at the Arts Center. Two mummies may’ve inspired the hordes, but it’s the little things that stand out, our art critic Leslie Newell Peacock observed in her review: “A bird-shaped palette for grinding minerals for eyeliners — meant to deflect the rays of the desert sun — dating to 4,000 B.C. Gold finger and toe guards to protect the digits of the dead. A faience goblet in the form of a lotus, startlingly blue. A tiny vessel in the shape of a hedgehog, meant to hold ointments.” The exhibit continues through July 5, 2010.
