Exhibition: The Quest for Immortality at Portland (Statesman Journal)
Continuing its travels, Quest goes to Portland: "The Portland Art Museum is selling general admission tickets for its next blockbuster exhibit, an unprecedented look into ancient Egypt. The show evokes the ornately conceived afterworld of ancient Egyptians through 107 objects, including sculpture, jewelry, sarcophagi and other masterpieces of funerary art. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a full-size replica of the tomb of Thutmose III, the ruler of Egypt in the 15th century BCE."

The exhibition will be running from 5th November 2006 to 4th March 2007.
