Exhibition: Objects for Eternity

A new exhibition, Objects for Eternity, Egyptian treasures from Antiquity, is opening today at the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam (Netherlands), with items from the collection of Dutch collector W. Arnold Meijer: "Approximately one hundred and fifty objects from ancient Egypt will be on display in the exhibition Objects for Eternity at the Allard Pierson Museum. This exhibition will show how intensively and carefully the ancient Egyptians prepared for the eternity they believed was in store for every decent person. The Allard Pierson Museum will show these glorious treasures - supplemented by a few objects from its own rich Egyptian collection - on their path through time, answering questions such as: How were they made? For whom? And why...?"
The exhibition runs from 17th November 2006 to 25th March 2007.
