CajaCanarias brings part of the Egyptian Museum's collection to its Cultural Space
More than one hundred works from the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona have gone on display today in the CajaCanarias Cultural Space in Tenerife's capital. Among them are sarcophagus covers, whose likenesses represent safety and tranquillity in the face of death. This display features no human mummies, although there is one of a newborn kitten, used as an offering. The exhibition "Egypt, in search of Eternity" also looks at Egypt's leading role in jewellery and cosmetics. It features reproductions and has on display photographs of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, the largest ever archaeological undertaking. The exhibition is on until 27th January, providing us a glimpse at one of the most intriguing and appealing civilizations in the history of humanity.
