March 2001 - The Luxor Museum

Beautiful things dramatically displayed

Happy ruler Cow guard for King Tut
Crocodiles Would you look this happy with a crocodile headed fellow standing next to you?
Akhenaton, carved in an odd, caricature-like way that appeared in art during his reign. coffin of a priest Another head of Akhenaton, a very odd character.  He moved the capital, bounced out all the gods but Aton, changed artistic norms, authored poetry, and let the Egyptian empire decline.
A coptic christian marker One of the figures found in the Luxor cachette - a group of statues found buried during modern restoration work on the Temple of Luxor
