Divine Aura in Pudong

"For anyone interested in what life was like under the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt and what the country is like today, the Super Brand Mall in Pudong has an exhibition that may unveil some of the mysteries of the past and give an insight into modern Egypt. Divine Aura is a Sino-Egyptian photographic exhibition of pictures taken by photographers from both countries . . . . It is part of Egyptian Week at the ongoing Shanghai International Arts Festival . . . . At the show, a number of replicas of cultural relics are on display, including 21 statues, three painted limestone panels and the "Rossetta Stone" which unlocked the secrets of ancient Egypt in the 19th century.For example, there is a replica of a statue of the God Anubis found in the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amon and the face of his father, the Pharaoh Akhenaton. Another 56 pieces of handicraft are also on display".
