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.

Abstract:
A special exhibition titled Temples and Tombs: Treasures of Egyptian Art from The British Museum will bring 85 objects from Egyptian history to the North Carolina Museum of Art. The works in stone, wood, precious metals, and papyrus will illuminate the Egyptian view of life, death, and the afterlife. The exhibition will be split into four sections which focus on the influence of the pharaoh or king, objects of artists and nobles, statures of Egyptians, and objects found in Egyptian tombs.
