Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Art’s statue of Bacchus is a composite of two ancient fragments that were assembled along with other baroque additions. The discovery was initially made in 1958 and it was never displayed as a result. A derestoration is planned over the next couple of years. The torso is one of only four other Roman imperial-period torsos known to exist and is from 2nd century, the head of Bacchus is from the 1st-3rd century and belonged to a Roman statue of a Greek Dionysos, and the left arm, hand, and some supports are baroque additions and will be removed eventually.

Abstract:
The Egyptian collection at the Museum was recently reorganized and updated after over 20 years on display. This reinstallation has allowed for updated educational material to be produced, a rearrangement of the objects into a thematic display, and for new items to be added to the display. The gallery’s reorganized display cases now introduce three important themes: The Afterlife and Funerary Practices, Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt, and Artisan Craft and Technology.

Abstract:
The Museum recently acquired the false door from the tomb of the Egyptian Ni-ankh-Snefru, known as Fefi. Fefi was a lector priest, Overseer of the Two Cool Rooms of the Great House, Overseer of the Pyramid Complex Menefer-Pepy, and a courtier of the royal house. The false door was a painting or sculpted relief representing a door that served as a passageway for the ka(soul) of the deceased to travel freely between the tomb and the afterlife. A description of the door, Fefi, and ancient Egyptian burial practices is detailed.

The Prudhoe Lion, its symbolism, and its creation are detailed. The Prudhoe Lion was commissioned by Pharaoh Amenhotep III to decorate the processional avenue of his jubilee temple at Soleb, downstream from the Third Cataract in Upper Nubia, Sudan.

The Prudhoe Lion, a statue of King Tutankhamun, and a statue of Amenhotep III all have the history of their creation, their importance, and their acquisition described.
