Largest Egyptian Exhibition In History

"The largest selection of antiquities ever loaned by Egypt for exhibition in North America travels to The Dayton Art Institute in 2005. Ancient Egyptian beliefs and practices based on the afterlife journey of pharaohs will be dramatically illustrated in THE QUEST FOR IMMORTALITY: Treasures of Ancient Egypt. A life-sized reconstruction of the burial chamber of the New Kingdom pharaoh Thutmose III (1479-1425 B.C.) is included among 115 magnificent objects from Egypt, many of which have never been on public display or seen outside of Egypt". See the Dayton Art Institute website for more. Dayton is in Ohio (U.S.). The exhibition will show from September 1, 2005 to January 3, 2006
