Exhibition: Akhenaten and Nefertiti in Erbach, DE

Suite101 (Stan Parchin)

In cooperation with Berlin's world-famous Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection, the Deutsches Elfenbeinmuseum Erbach (Erbach German Ivory Museum) presents Akhenaten and Nefertiti: Rulers in the Divine Light (April 3-August 9, 2009). Some 70 works of art from Egypt's Amarna Period are superbly displayed, each produced during the 17-year reign of the enigmatic Pharaoh Akhenaten (r. 1352-1335 B.C.) and Nefertiti, his principal wife.

See the above page for more details. It looks great - wish I could go!

Zahi Hawass will be fuming.

Zahi Hawass will be angry hearing this. Maybe he might show up claiming Nefertiti once again.
