Faiyum Portraits on Display

"Dr. Zahi Hawwas has opened an exhibition in the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square showing a number of Fayyoum portraits. The exhibition is set to go on display for two months. It includes 12 portraits and 7 busts considered of major significance". The portraits are not exclusively from the Faiyum - but they are known as the Faiyoum portraits because that is where the first ones were found.
