"Mummy: Unveiling the Ancient Art of Preservation" Step back in time to ancient Egypt, during the Roman period, and discover the captivating world of mummies. From their origins in Egypt to their intricate preservation techniques, these timeless relics continue to intrigue us today. The Fayum mummy portraits offer a glimpse into the lives of those who lived centuries ago. Painted during the Roman period, these stunning portraits adorned coffins and depicted individuals with astonishing realism. Owen Jones Egyptian 10 showcases one such portrait, capturing a man's enigmatic gaze that has stood the test of time. Intriguingly, mummies were not limited to humans alone. Rameses III himself was preserved as a mummy after his reign as Pharaoh ended. The full-length Egyptian mummy reveals both the artistry and reverence bestowed upon these royal figures. One cannot delve into the world of mummies without mentioning their spiritual beliefs. The Book of the Dead (Page 34) sheds light on ancient Egyptians' belief in an afterlife and their meticulous preparations for it. Moving beyond Egypt's borders, we find ourselves captivated by Romano-Egyptian influences seen in Portrait of a youth in a gold wreath from Fayum. This early 2nd-century masterpiece seamlessly blends two cultures' artistic styles into one compelling image. Astrology played an essential role in ancient civilizations too; zodiac signs guided daily life decisions. As seen in Turkey's Haghia Sophia Mosque mosaic depicting Virgin Mary holding Jesus, celestial symbolism transcended boundaries and found its way onto sacred walls. Embalming was at the heart of preserving bodies for eternity - Owen Jones Egyptian 8 highlights this delicate process that ensured physical integrity throughout millennia. Owen Jones Egyptian 11 transports us back further still – showcasing a page from Thebes' Book of Dead belonging to Hunefer during Egypt's illustrious 19th Dynasty around c1300 BC. This ancient text provides insights into the rituals and beliefs surrounding death.
