Pharaohs of the sun : Akhenaten, Nefertiti, Tutankhamen by Mass.) Museum of fine arts (Boston( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures in history evoke the curiosity or command the attention that Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and Tutankhamen do. Pharaoh Akhenaten founded the city of Amarna 3,500 years ago. In this volume the fascinating Amarna Period of ancient Egypt comes to life through more than 250 beautiful works of sculpture, architectural elements, ceramic ware, jewelry, clothing, tools, and furniture from renowned international collections. Essays by leading Egyptian scholars describe this time of unprecedented change in Egyptian art and architecture, technology, the role of women, and religion, specifically the transition from polytheism to monotheism

Arts of ancient Egypt by Rita E Freed( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the first mummies, monumental sculptures, and other ancient Egyptian artifacts to come to America became part of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston's holdings as early as 1872. Today, the MFA's Egyptian collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. This volume features over one hundred of the most important of these objects, with texts by three prominent Egyptologists. Introductions to each major period of ancient Egyptian history provide an overview of the worshipped rulers, regional lords, and myriad laborers who commissioned and created these beautiful works, as well as the political events, religious rituals, and technical accomplishments that helped shape them. Some of these objects, such as the bust of Ankhhaf or the monumental sculpture of King Menkaure and queen, have no equal anywhere. Others boast a unique local history, such as the Torso of King Achoris that was purchased as ballast by a Yankee sea captain and displayed for sixty years on a postmaster's front lawn. Whatever one's interest, this book provides a tantalizing glimpse into the civilization that has fascinated the West since Antony first wooed Cleopatra."--Jacket

Arts of Ancient Nubia by DENISE M DOXEY( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Nubia was home to a series of civilizations between the sixth millennium BCE and 350 CE that produced towering monuments, including more pyramids than in neighboring Egypt, and artifacts of enduring beauty and significance. Nubia's trade network reached across the Mediterranean and far into Africa. At the time that Nubian kings conquered Egypt, in the middle of the eighth century BCE, they controlled one of the largest empires of the ancient world. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has the most extensive and important collection of ancient Nubian art outside of Khartoum, mostly gathered during the pioneering Harvard University's Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition in the first half of the 20th century. The objects highlighted in this volume include refined early ceramics, monumental statues and relief carvings made for royal pyramids, exquisite gold and enamel jewelry, playful decorations for furniture and clothing, and luxury goods traded from around the Mediterranean world."--Publisher's description
