Golden Mummies of Egypt in Buffalo
Saturday June 13, 2020
Glittering gold and mysterious mummies are among Ancient Egypt’s most iconic and popular attractions. Golden Mummies of Egypt presents eight extraordinary mummies and also explores beliefs about the afterlife when Egypt was part of the Greek and Roman worlds.
Centred on eight mummies from the Manchester Museum’s world-class collection, this exhibition offers an insight into the hopes and fears of the wealthy in society. Those who could afford the expensive process of mummification hoped to cheat death. This ancient ritual harnessed the protective power of a range of Egypt’s many gods to immortalise the deceased. By being covered in gold, the Egyptians hoped to imitate the eternal radiance of the gods themselves.
